Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
a culturally black person cannot become president of the US. The right wing is all over this guy.

True. But whites in Ohio do not admit the existence of blacks who are not "Culturally" black. They are branded- "Uppity".

Obama's framework relies on thought- on comprehension- in a culture where slogans have long dominated and now largely replace thought.

That's why several good commenters elsewhere have said that his speech (and, in fact, his whole campaign) are perhaps too smart.
Obama thinks we're better than we are.  

Capitalism searches out the darkest corners of human potential, and mainlines them.
