    I think it reduces to one word: education. If you correlate voters with race and education, you'll find that educated white voters prefered Obama. The North East has a high percentage of educated people. The problem is states with a high percentage of uneducated white voters, like Alabama, who are fodder for the conservative noise machine and it's ugly rhetoric of xenophobia, scapegoating and race-baiting.

    It proves that because a college student works without pay and has to live like a child, he winds up with the mind of a child. Because of his childishness, he looks at his extremist Left professors as infallible father figures. People who submit to this indentured-servitude education are afraid to grow up. After they graduate, they no longer need to be afraid of that because they will never grow up.

    Because their a pack of Liberals their educated, I don't think so. They have been brainwashed by the liberal professors who without tenure would not have a job. And the students when they get out of collage they live with mommy and daddy and stay on their insurance until the age of 26. Then they still live at home because they can't get a job that spells liberal.

    Re: Something to think about

    I am white and voted for Obama, do I get a cookie or something?

    I am not getting what the OP is getting at, I don't feel I had any racial stake in this election, unless Romney was trying to apply affirmative action to me (I am white, but in DC I am a minority after all) and I just missed it. Had he done that I would still vote against him. Race is pretty meaningless to me.

    sometimes it still boggles my mind that human beings care so damned much about the melanin content (or lack thereof) in other peoples' skin.

    No joke. I think we should focus more on melons than melanin.

    It's not about that and you know it. To answer your dishonest point with a silly analogy, wouldn't people with a sun tan be discriminated against in a "racist" society? Prejudice is a reaction to behavior; an honest but still self-righteous answer would be that the undesirable behavior was originally caused by prejudice. So it appears to be a chicken-and-egg problem. But the fact that you don't allow an equal voice to both sides proves that your side is wrong and you know that too. You are afraid of an open debate.
