The Black Experience in America

Are we intellectually honest?

We all have people we like?  Do we give them a pass on issues that we would not permit with other people.  Some in the media went after Sarah Palin because of her teenage daughter’s pregnancy.  What was your initial response.  And who do you support in this election campaign?  If you are a Barack supporter, would your view and reaction be different if it were one of Barack’s daughters leaping many years from now of course?  How do you feel if you are a McCain supporter.  I have found that when someone likes another person the truth about that person and how we feel about different things seems to get blurred or diverges fairly significantly from our normal attitudes.  This feels normal but seems dishonest intellectually.  What do you think?
