    What Chris Matthews' "I forgot Obama was black for an hour" statement really means.

    I could toss off some wry comment about this ridiculous comment by Chris
    Matthews, but the fact that he had no problem stating this on the air raises an
    interesting question -- what is he really saying with a statement like that?
    What it boils down to is that there's something about being "black" to forget --
    such as um, being articulate, or educated, or perhaps in his mind, standing up
    there and doing the whole SOTU thing in the wake of a whole lot of white
    guys and guess what? He's not all that different from any of them.

    Yes

    I have to be honest this statement so subtle yet so profound shows the depth, the psychosis of how we are viewed by the "avatars".

    the point is will the president be upset about that publicized statement or not, or do the dance when asked about it at the press conference?
