Yeah, crows and ravens have been symbols of disaster for centuries. I don't even know where the racism thing comes into that.
It might be a bit oversensitive to accuse Santorum of being racist for using crows in an anti-Obama video...
Let's put that one to rest: it is.
Worry not, though. I'm sure he'll say something proper racist in the next day and a half or so.

Okay fair enough. Ordinarily, it probably wouldn't have even occurred to me. But I've been reading "The Help," and also read a blog about how some people on Twitter are complaining that the character of Rue in Hunger Games ended up being black in the movie, and how it ruined it for them. So yeah, I've had race on the mind a lot the last few days.
Me as well. I think that the Trayvon Martin stuff has everyone a little bit on edge.
