Katie Couric recently said "I find myself in the last bastion of male dominance, and realizing what Hillary Clinton might have realized not long ago: that sexism in the American society is more common than racism, and certainly more acceptable or forgivable." Read the Whole Story Here
Katie, you are a white woman, of course you are saying that. This isn't new, it sounds like the same old garbage that came from the suffragists, and the first and second wave of feminists. More than a century has passed, and white women still think they are more "oppressed" than black men.
lets look at a few pieces of of propaganda that suggest Hillary had it a bit easier than Obama....
Obama Sock Puppet
Long Island Independents Gross Spoof

This matched with all hate that Michelle has had to, and will continue to endure because of her race, including the Baby mama garbage & you can see more of the hateful attacks at Michelle Obama Watch
Michelle Obama was not chastised by the media because she was a woman, she was chastised because she was a black woman.
Minimizing race makes it easier for people to deal with it. However, it is VERY important to not look at race alone. Michelle and Barack's experience is quite different, Obama is not criticized for the same things as Michelle, its very much because of their race, but particular to their respective genders.
Yet, I am not surprised by Kaite Couric's comment.
