POLITICS: SEX OR RACE?
Thought this might be appropriate in the waning hours of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. There's talk that black women have to struggle with voting for Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama - sex or race? And that black voters who were formerly the bedrock base for the Clinton's are defecting to the Guiliani camp. (Just checking to see if you're awake on that one.)
So....would you vote based on your race/ethnicity or sex given the choice? Would I vote for an Italian/Irish/Venezuelan male candidate (yes, I'm all three) over a Waspy female candidate? If the two were ceteris parabus 100%..... I don't know which lever I'd pull. I don't. Do any of us know before we draw the curtain in that booth?
