Daily News: Obama addresses issue of race

Sen. Barack Obama is addressing his speech about race a few days ago, specifically some of his references to "typical white people." Personally, I thought the speech was a great one. The issues of race in this country are not as easy as saying that there are no problems.

Divisions of race still deeply separate Americans in many communities, especially in the suburbs. Cities are places where diversity is an everyday fact of life.

Sen. Obama's speech was a good one to spark conversation about race, because he was looking at things honestly. Hopefully, he won't back up from any comments. Being politically correct is not as important as saying something of meaning and truth. It's as good a time as any to starting talking about race in a productive way nationally. It's been time for such an issue.
