Black. Female. Accomplished. Attacked.

Sophia A. Nelson writes for The Washington Post: "Welcome to our
world. We've watched with a mixture of pride and trepidation as the
wife of the first serious African-American presidential contender has
weathered recent campaign travails - being called unpatriotic for a
single offhand remark, dubbed a black radical because of something she
wrote more than 20 years ago and plastered with the crowning
stereotype: 'angry black woman.' And then being forced to undergo a
politically mandated 'makeover' to soften her image and make her more
palatable to mainstream America."
