UM: Politics

On the Our Values blog, UM professor Wayne Baker solicits reader opinion about the presidential race: ”It’s curious that the media has focused on the race versus economy issue recently. Don’t get me wrong: the media has reported on these issues before. But in the last few days the reporting has escalated, with up-close-and-personal quotes of people who are – and are not – voting according to race. And, we’ve had reports of a foiled ‘effort’ by racists to assassinate Obama. (I say effort because ‘plot’ would suggest more organization and forethought than appears to be true in this case.) What do you make of it all?” [Source]
