lucky lucky oh you're so lucky:
Often times, I think to myself: God, I'm so disadvantaged by not being black in America! It's like you can't even find work in the media as a Jew these days. Everywhere you go, the country just yields more and more African-Americans in positions of power, prestige and responsibility and builds prisons and blighted schools and substandard levees for white people.

Clinton supporter Geraldine Ferraro agrees. Via Markos:
If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position. And if he was a woman (of any color) he would not be in this position. He happens to be very lucky to be who he is. And the country is caught up in the concept.
Some people -- or, rather, peoples -- have all the luck!
--Spencer Ackerman
And the country is caught up in the concept.

Yes, we're all caught up in that 'a black man can make a great president' concept. Crazy, isn't it?

As it pertains directly to Obama, of course. No slight to women. Just saying.
