Commentator Not Swayed by the Obvious

By on 1.27.08 | 2:12PM

Headline from today's CNN: "Voters not swayed by racial politics." Writes Roland S. Martin:

Sure, Obama received one-fourth of the white vote, and won an overwhelming percentage of the black vote. But when you look at those white voters, he really scored well among those 18-29. This is the generation that grew up with hip-hop, who are less likely to be hung up about race.

MC Obama gets the white hip-hop vote. Congratulations.
