Barack Obama on Race
Another brilliant speech by Barack Obama. Once again, Obama showed that he could use his oratorical skills to communicate and reach out to people across ethnic and racial lines.
It is impressive how he addressed the raging Rev White controversy by condemning his words, yet explaining his closeness to the man. A sure sign of honesty and self-confidence in a politician.
He has proven his ability to respond and indulge in “damage control” in a more than conventional way. This will be put to test more than ever where he to become the Democratic candidate. However, he first he has to translate this oratorical skill to primary victories in non-caucus states and gain the nomination.
Overall his speech was nicely blended with his pet themes of unity and change. An impressive piece of speech writing and as always, superbly delivered.
