    I am curious. I figure a lot of whites thought: Hey, it couldn't be the worst thing in the world to have a black president. It would be pretty monumental. Sure would erase a lot of racial tension.

    Only to discover:

    Just the opposite has happened.

    Nope, since I live with minorities, I know just how bigoted and hateful they are. But My California relatives seem to LOVE Obama. They live in all WHITE communities. I don't care WHO is president anymore. Black, white or martian. Rich white ones get us into insane wars, others try to balance military budgets and get vilified. The new shiny mixed race guy wants us to accept homosexuality and illegal immigrants in the same gulp. NONE of those assholes represent the common man, the common voter or common sense. There is a disconnect here. And I don't care anymore. My views on race and my views on politics have become more cynical, if anything.

    Yes. In the past, I don't recall recognizing it,[race] but now I do and it's dark and I don't mean that as a pun. Our culture has reversed itself many, many years. Very, very joyless to view America now, since the past, almost, four years. I look forward to the day when race relations can be restored, to some degree, but I think, much of the damage has been done and it all may only get worse.

    I think a war of a different sort, is in the making and I hope I am wrong.

    This is why, for me, it's hard to get excited about Romney.

    I'm totally distraught about what's happening to whites, i.e., they're becoming the minority, they're at the mercy of anti-white forces like Obama, Holder, Rev. Wright, etc., they're attacked by illegals, Spanish is taking over, whites are "fair game" for Hollywood to mock, all that.

    But Romney's going to do what? Make Israel and corporate America his No. 1 and 2 priorities?

    funk that junk.

    He's like John McCain only without the military service.

    My view of Afros has grown increasingly negative. We get an Afro president, winning more votes than any other politician in US history, and liberals/Afros don't ease up on complaining that society is racist against Afros, even while overt anti-white is pervasive across the country.

    Romney is a Mormon. Mormons don't fantasize about having sex with Christ-killers. So, he's no McCain. He won't start wars for Israel, I don't think. Starting wars against countries that don't like Israel is a priority for McCain.

    Romney, like Obama, has to give some support and lip service to Israel because of the neocons entrenched in high places in government and the political parties.

    Only thing that's changed for me is the awareness that minorities in this country have become more intense, pop culturally acceptable and bigger racists than those they once decried, believing they are entitled to be racist because 'it happened to them first' (which is a load of crap for racism has existed for over 5000 years.)

    All his election has done for me is to cement the idea that incompetence knows no racial boundaries.
