    Taking the truism to heart that it s always good to read dissent and criticism, adding that holding fast to ideology despite contrary evidence is dangerous I wanted to read this not because reading, say, The Turner Diaries is in any way courageous, but because Sailer is an intelligent and provocative writer who admires Obama s writing for its literary artistry, yet has issues with the man s agenda Fair enough Sailer, also a film critic, does a good job of pointing out competition between whites as a prime motivator toward the race, pun not intended, to embrace Obama His use of simple terms like whites and blacks may strike some as uncomfortably outmoded It s a proposition that I hadn t thought of or come across before, perhaps because to discuss race today, qua race, is to walk across the coals, none too lightly.So, race then matters Sailer says yes, yes indeed, whether or not race is defined as a social construction only He would likely say no here Why does it matter Because it motivates, motivates politically, and thus influences policy Sailer doesn t put it in these terms, but he may well agree that what Obama seeks to do for blacks is but the other side of the coin of what the Dixiecrats would have done and did for whites Cynical speculation How dare one impart such base thinking to a man of eloquence Well, look at his writings And Sailer does, in depth, which is great for readers like me who have not read Obama s works The main agony in that work shows itself as the question, Who am I, racially Given that Obama is biracial, and that in America who you are racially is that great unspoken mark of character and status, it makes sense Cf the old laws determining that one black great grandparent makes one black, etc., as I recall.This is uncomfortable to think about, especially for those post racial folks who think that they hold no prejudices at all, are gems of understanding and tolerance, and so forth This also brings to mind the play about the white Dartmouth professor, I believe, who holds herself to be such a paragon, then cracks her own facade with a litany of confessions about how she really feels That s all I can remember of a long ago review of it I haven t seen the play.Sailer asks, or less, why Obama s own exquisitely written autobiography, Dreams from My Father , would be subtitled a Story of Race and Inheritance if the man were not wrestling with that story, its subject This is a good examination, however disagreeable at times, of a great question that too few have asked.
