Own Your Women in the Land of Racism

Quote from a local newspaper story today about election candidates:

"Hannemann was born in Honolulu, has a Japanese-American wife, and graduated from Harvard University. Abercrombie was born in Buffalo, N.Y., has a haole wife and graduated from Union College in New York and the University of Hawaii-Manoa."

The racial background of candidates' wives is a legitimate campaign issue?

Apparently in the US race is something important.
Important enough to mention because otherwise people wouldn't notice and then they wouldn't be able to define prejudices ...

Sadly, the more American culture attempts to eliminate racism through "cultural awareness", the more entrenched racial divisiveness seems to become.
