AFL-CIO Secretary Treasurer on Race and Barack Obama

November 3, 2008

 

If somehow you’ve managed to make it to November 3rd undecided about who you will vote for tomorrow I challenge you to look at the issue of race.  First hold in your mind everything that is important to you in this election.  The economy, health care, the wars, education, the environment… and then ask yourself a couple of questions.

Who will best address these issues and bring about desperately needed change?  Does the skin color of this person really matter?
