Race is a Reality–so why is it so Off-Limits in the Election Campaign?

Race is a Reality–so why is it so Off-Limits in the Election Campaign?

The McCain campaign is at it again, calling Obama out for using the “race-card” after he told an Iowa crowd Republicans would try to scare voters by pointing to his “funny name” and the fact that “he doesn’t look like all those other presidents on those dollar bills.” “Nobody really thinks that Bush or McCain have a real answer for the challenges we face, so what they’re doing to try to do is make you scared of me. You know, he’s not patriotic enough. Well you know, he’s got a funny name, and he doesn’t look like all the presidents on the dollar bills and five dollar bills…”
The McCain camp immediately responded and said, “Barack Obama has played the race card, and he played it from the bottom of the deck.”

But isn’t race a reality? People talk about McCain’s age and Hillary’s sex, so why not Obama’s race? It seems as though spreading rumors about Obama’s religion is cool but God forbid he brings up the race issue. What does everyone else think???
