Should Obama Give Another Speech on Race?

According to a Pew research poll, revelations about Rev. Jeremiah Wright's incendiary statements hurt Barack Obama's favorability rating. As a result of the Wright ruckus, Obama gave a major speech in March addressing race ...but only after the scandal forced him to. Other than that, the presumptive Democratic nominee has avoided addressing race directly. Now some are calling on him to give another speech and pre-empt the next racial brouhaha before it becomes an issue in the general election. What's the right approach for America's first serious minority contender for the highest office?
