Nader Accuses Obama of "Talking White"

He's watching Friends, not Comicview.

For the past six months, Barack Obama denounced everything except his skin color to avoid race during the intense Democratic primary race. Now, Ralph Nader, the perennial presidential monkey wrench (and token independent white guy), is accusing Barack Obama of not being racial enough.

According to Nader, Obama is "talking white" by not talking about poverty and inner city issues.

But of course, if he does talk about these issues, he becomes another "militant" black man who white people can easily dismiss and ignore like Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson.

Maybe Obama will wear a leather Africa medallion and a pick with a fist in it to his next speech, that might make Nader happy.
