From Jack & Jill Politics:
Found this in the comments section at Ta-Nehisi Coates:
To anyone who thinks $600 million is too much to spend on a presidential campaign, here is a little context. Obama was not just running against another candidate, he was running against more than 300 years of American culture and mythology depicting Black americans as sub human. Think about all the books, newspapers, folk tales, movies, magazines etc. that in ways big and small were devoted to promoting this canard. At less than two million a year, I’d say that’s the bargain of this or any millenium.
