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

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.
