WHO SAYS BLOGS DON’T AFFECT ELECTIONS:

A blogger’s depiction of Lt. Gov. Michael Steele in minstrel makeup has brought to surface issues of race — and fidelity to one’s race — as the Republican seeks to become Maryland’s first black senator.

A black man in New York who runs a left-leaning news commentary site created the image and condemned Steele last week as “Simple Sambo.”

It’s interesting that “race-loyalty” has become an important campaign issue.
