A Black Man and A Mormon Walk into a Bar...

Hi Meltingpot Readers,

I'm sorry for not posting yesterday, but I'm in the middle of correcting final exams. And because I teach writing courses, my 'exams' are long papers and projects so, dear readers, the blog gets neglected. But I can't leave you without something to chew on this week. So, please take a peek at the following article peened by two AP writers on The Black Guy and The Mormon Who Want to Be President of the USA. That's my headline, not theirs. Their headline is a little more understated: "Race, Religion Collide in 2012 Election." But still, it's a good story. Check it out please and let me know.

What effect, if any, do you think Romney's religion will have on voters? What do you think is easier to 'ignore?' Race or religion?

You know I'm listening.

Great article. Very insightful indeed. I just wanted to point out that the link to it was broken (it was missing the http: part)
As always I am loving your blog :-)
