Press Release Summary: Author and political analyst Earl Ofari Hutchinson predicted in his new book, The Ethnic Presidency: How Race decides the Race to the White House that race could sink Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama
Press Release Body: Los Angeles , Ca. U.S.,April 30,2008--Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama's abysmal failure to get major support from white workers, and rural white voters in major states, the racially inflammatory controversy surrounding his former pastor, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, and his so-called race speech laying out his views on race in America are daunting examples of how race has dogged the footsteps of Obama throughout his drive for the White House.
The great racial divide, says author and political analyst Earl Ofari Hutchinson, in The Ethnic Presidency: How Race decides the Race to the White House is no surprise. Hutchinson makes a compelling case in his book that race has always been a subtle subtext to presidential politics going back to the presidential campaign of GOP standard bearer Barry Goldwater in 1964. The campaign themes such as states rights, crime in the streets, the assault on big government, slashing social programs, affirmative action, the forgotten middle class, and welfare elimination have been played on by presidents and presidential aspirants that include Goldwater, Reagan, Bush Sr., Carter and Clinton to get white votes, says Hutchinson in The Ethnic Presidency.
Hutchinson further predicts in The Ethnic Presidency: How Race decides the Race to the White House that race will continue to be a thorny issue and problem for Obama if he gets the Democratic presidential nomination. The Wright controversy, his liberal advocacy of affirmative action and racial parity will continue to be subtly and overtly reviled on the campaign trail. It will surface in hit ads on him. Race won't sink his candidacy, says Hutchinson , but it will be a tormenting worry for Obama and the Democratic Party.
