Mr Brandy is awake now, and has serious objection to raising funds for the USA president's election campaign when a black or a woman is doing the same what was done by their predecessors like Reagan, Bush and et al. If Brandy knows about foreign affairs why does he not contest this election that too with out spending a dime.

What has happened to Americans (white) who all of a sudden became so cold and stiff to issues of gender and colour. Are these the same people who for the last three hundred years have been shouting from the top of the roof of being the champions of democracy, equallity, human rights (although they granted voting rights to women very late). It is indeed surprising that one small human trait, skin colour, can shake the great nations like USA (who is dreaming of a shining American century). For the first time I am witnessing an election where the opponents are hitting below the belts and lowered the credibility of an American in the eyes of the world.
