if not for the stubbornness of our national sexism


Senior Member
I'm trying to understand the meaning of a sentence from the newspaper The Boston globe about the American primaries. The journalist oppose Obama and Clinton, saying "Black man vs. white woman".
About Clinton, he says "she would have long since sewn up the nomination if not or the stubbornness of our national sexism". I don't understand that sentence.
Does it mean something like "elle aurait depuis longtemps obtenu la désignation, si elle ne s'était pas opposé à l'obstruction de notre sexisme national"

Thank you
