Who here said that racism in the US was all but dead because a black man was elected President?
Well, think again if you were one of them.
Amazing how a biracial kiss featured in a newspaper sparked so much hatred.
A kiss is just a kiss — well, not this one

ST. LOUIS — Their kiss launched an online frenzy.
This particular kiss wasn't the first for Chris Spencer and his girlfriend, Emilee Murphree. In fact, they are hundreds of smooches into their 21/2- year-old relationship.
But this kiss, captured in a photo April 10 in the Post-Dispatch's Go! section, quickly attracted 350-plus comments on the newspaper's race blog. Specifically, it wasn't the kiss so much as those doing the kissing that created such buzz.
