Your Views: Race in election is not a factor if there are only whites on ballot

POSTED: June 28, 2012 1:00 a.m.

Surely Michael Hawkins’s letter of June 22 was tongue in cheek. During the more than 50 presidential elections before Barack Obama ran in 2008, with the possibility of a few write-in votes, every white person who voted for president voted for a white man. Surprise, Mr. Hawkins — during those same elections, every person of color also voted for a white man.

Surely, he is aware that only white men were on the ballot. You voted for a white man, wrote in another name or you didn’t vote. Very simple.
