the racism FOR obama is not something i have had personal contact with, although i'm sure it exists. personally, i thought electing obama would help ease some of the racism that exists in our country. instead, it's brought it to the forefront. it's emboldened elected officials to the point where they send racist e-mails......police, mayors, etc. i think that's part of the reason liberals are ultra sensitive, rightly or wrongly.
for my part, i suppose i am a little defensive. on my husband's side of the family, there are closet, and not so closet racists. that has never been as apparent as it now. these are business owning, educated people. not on my side. i really was raised to be colorblind, and i really AM offended by racist comments.
