From The Wall Street Journal:

The piano tune features the refrain: "I'm dreaming of a white president." It is full of satirical, sarcastic — and signature — [Randy] Newman anecdotes about someone who votes for the president because he is white.

Newman, who is white, is openly supporting President Barack Obama. ... He called racism "the great issue of this country."

"I felt that that sentiment exists in the country," Newman said. "I don't know how many people you can get to admit it. I think maybe zero."

Wow.
