Leonard Pitts doesn’t seem capable of writing a column without blaming white people for something. This time it was the election of Donald Trump. Well this country elected Barack Obama twice; what changed? Obama’s skin color was a substantial asset in his election. If everything he said, every syllable, had been said by a short, balding, chubby, 60-something white man, he wouldn’t have been nominated much less elected.
