Double standard

February 06, 2009

Re "Safe choice for the GOP," editorial, Feb. 3

I sincerely hope that the editorial board of The Times was jesting when it wrote that one of Republican Party Chairman Michael Steele's advantages was that "he might be free to criticize President Obama in ways a white party leader wouldn't."

This is a rather divisive statement and implies a double standard in our political dialogue. I thought that one of the tenets of Obama's candidacy was getting beyond race.

It is apparent that the board has not absorbed one aspect of the "change" Obama was calling for.
