In Defence of...

Hillary. She is doing what any other political campaign will do: pick on the other guys (or gals). So blacks are getting upset because she is picking on Barack Hussein Obama. Why are they getting upset, is it because they are playing the race card by trying to play the victim?

Those on both sides say watching the battle unfold in the Palmetto State, where black voters could cast half of the votes in the Democratic primary, won’t be pretty.

“To some of us, it is painful,” said state Sen. Darrell Jackson, a Clinton supporter.

U.S. Rep. Jim Clyburn, D-S.C., had pledged to remain neutral as Democrats competed for votes in the state’s primary.

Is Hillary picking on Obama because he is black? No... he is her political opponent and as such, he is fair game. Just as Hillary shouldn't complain about being picked on herself, after all, she is also an opponent 1st and foremost regardless of her sex. Message to both: if you can't stand the heat, get out of the fire.

It seems to me that if blacks really want perceived racial tensions to ease, they should not continue to find cause to have tensions. (Oh yeah, this will never happen as long as Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton continue to be the 'leaders'.)

the same goes for any 'victim' group out there. I'm getting very tired of 'victimhood' politics.

As for me, I don't see things as black vs. white. We are all various shades of the same color: tan.

Update: Brendan Loy has the same thoughts, but is actually doing something about it. (ht: Instapundit)

Update II: Michelle Malkin has a great roundup (as usual).
