"Race was a factor"

Illinois senator, Dick Durbin, admitted that race was a factor in the decision by the U.S. Senate to seat Roland Burris despite concerns that he was appointed by Governor Blago.

I think that we all realized that already, but it becomes more interesting when we actually talk about it. Isn't race always a factor in politics?

Does the fact that race was a part of the decision to seat the Senator from Illinois make a difference to you?
Will we ever be at a point in America when race won't have to be a factor in decision making?

like the old saying - if God turned us all inside out - we'd be the same color.

don't know where i saw that - but knowing human race like i do - i know by noon we'd figure out something to argue and fight about.
