I bring this to show what is happening out there and give some balance to the field for who is doing what in these final days and hours. In some media circles, it would be easy to believe that this election is a strict racial divide between Black and White Americans with little to no middle ground and nothing to meet about if it could be found.

Well, that's not strictly true, although the media itself is the least likely to show this. Both Fox on the right and MSNBC joining others on the left have their agendas and the following protest does not fit well with either of them. It is, however, one part of what is happening in the nation out there and it should be known as much as any of the truly Racial statements and demonstrations of intolerance we're seeing.

Not everything in this race is racial. Not by a long shot.

It's not a huge protest....but then if we go by crowd numbers, some of the recent crowds to greet Obama are what I'd point to next for using pure numbers of people to show meaning either way. If it's more than a few friends, it's showing sentiment among a group beyond the numbers represented in those actually protesting. So it is here...and I hope this shows another side of the nation right now for come balance and context.
