"With the number of categories on that list, every person in America would be in at least one, if not several categories. Veterans? People of faith? Young professionals? Small business owners? On and on."

Except you cannot be a "caucasian" any one of those now can you?

"I was just wondering why it had all the other brorad brush races except Caucasian."

Perhaps the Obama campaign has special targeted messages for all the other listed groups. I guess white men get the generic message.

"Doesn't mention "liberals" either."

ha!

But really we need to stop with all the labels, folks.

About Us


CNSNews.com was launched on June 16, 1998 as a news source for individuals, news organizations and broadcasters who put a higher premium on balance than spin and seek news that’s ignored or under-reported as a result of media bias by omission.

Study after study by the Media Research Center, the parent organization of CNSNews.com, clearly demonstrate a liberal bias in many news outlets – bias by commission and bias by omission – that results in a frequent double-standard in editorial decisions on what constitutes "news."

In response to these shortcomings, MRC Chairman L. Brent Bozell III founded CNSNews.com in an effort to provide an alternative news source that would cover stories that are subject to the bias of omission and report on other news subject to bias by commission."

Sure, as long as it meets the requirements of the right. Not necessarily truth, just that side.

You can be a black veteran but you cannot be a white veteran. And who is always complaining that things are about race? Seems being white or caucasian in this country is not important but being African American, Asian American, Latino, or Native American is....well at least to liberals.

"-- what got cut in the edit?"

A whole lotta stuff. There's no choice for "men" in the full list (you gotta use The Google), I notice.
