Black McCain, White Obama Posters

Grey NYC, a NYC advertising firm has launched a poster campaign intended to deliver the message that the electorate should cast their votes based on the candidates' policies and ignore their racial differences.

Apparently they have become a collectors item and New Yorkers are removing them from some of the street signs.

You can understand how the reasoning for the campaign came about and it might have made sense a couple of months ago.

However excluding a few racists that Palin has been attracting, the fact that Obama is black has been about the only thing that the GOP hasn’t accused him of.

The US is so polarized between red and blue, and left and right, that the poster probably would of have had more impact if they placed McCain on the left side, labelled Democratic, and Obama on the right labelled Republican.

From the Globe and Mail:
However, the government is facing criticism because 2,374 Syrian refugees have so far been settled. Of that number, only 622 - or 26 percent - were assisted by the government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government organizations. The NDP argues that in addition to private sponsors, the government should immediately accept 10,000 Syrian refugees. Liberal leader Justin Trudeau said the target should be 25,000 government-sponsored refugees, which he estimates would cost Ottawa $100-million.In other words the Harper government that banters around the 10,000 plus refugee number has brought in 622 refugees or about 170 families.

The other 2,352 so called refugees that Harper has allowed to emigrate to Canada consist of wealthy Syrian Christians who paid their own way in, hightailing …
