Here’s hoping that Barack Obama will do a fundraiser – soon – for Rep. Steven Cohen of Memphis.
“This seat was set aside for people who look like me,” said Mr. Herenton’s campaign manager, Sidney Chism, a black county commissioner. “It wasn’t set aside for a Jew or a Christian. It was set aside so that blacks could have representation.”
In 2008, Obama denounced a race-baiting ad from Cohen’s challenger. But some lessons need to be taught over and over and over.
