Race is no longer an issue in America

I have a problem with the media being so divisive, especially concerning race.

Your article on Nov. 5 that “most white voters went with McCain” is an example. The article might just as easily have read “most African-Americans went with Obama,” or “most Jewish people went with Obama” (I’m Jewish).
Each of those observations would have been equally true.

Perhaps the article could have read that MANY white voters went for Obama, since the majority of voters are white and without their help Obama could never have been elected.

If I were African-American and I read just the title of your article, I would be left with the idea that white America is still very prejudiced.

Instead, I shoud be thinking that things have changed in America and although there are prejudices on both sides, there are enough clear-thinking, non-prejudiced people in this land to make the election results exactly what they were.

We now have President-Elect Obama.
