Racism v. Sexism


 

I’m personally still processing Obama’s speech on race — and so is much of the country, it seems. Conservative pundit Bob Novak argues it has finally branded Obama as the “black” candidate. Meanwhile, David Broder loved it, sort of. The speech, as well as the comments of Geraldine Ferraro, and this op-ed by Gloria Steinem about gender being a greater political obstacle than race, has also prompted a lot of coverage of the allegiances of black women. (Both in this article and in other interviews I’ve heard, they tend to say race has been a bigger obstacle in their lives.)
