The "Unhappy Halloween, Hon" (Nov. 3) commentary by Michael Cross-Barnet was a scream. Like a Holy Roman emperor or a demented totalitarian dictator, it dictated what was appropriate free speech for all times and all places. It also chastised the owner of Cafe Hon for apologizing for a Halloween depiction of a white person with a black face only twice and not at least three times. Moreover, the writer actually spelled out in several sentences what it deemed as the only appropriate wording of a theoretical third apology by the Cafe Hon . And what was the Hon's verbal trespass?

Barack Obama is black. Hillary Rodham Clinton is a woman. So if you're an African-American woman - and therefore, presumably, a Democrat - how do you choose between Senator Obama and Senator Clinton in what could turn out to be a precedent-setting presidential election? That was the question on my mind as I wandered the lobby Friday at the Democratic National Committee's 2007 winter meeting, which doubled as the first cattle call for the party's 2008 presidential contenders. Before getting to the responses from several notable African-American women I cornered, let's pause to consider for a moment just how significant the black female vote might be in next year's Democratic primaries.

However, the Afro-American, a twice-weekly national newspaper published in Baltimore, reported that blacks' blood would not be accepted.It was the ultimate insult for Maryland blacks (and the ultimate irony, since a black surgeon, Dr. Charles Drew, organized the blood bank system during the war), but certainly not a surprise.
