    They're not exactly rooting for Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., but prominent white supremacists anticipate a boost to their cause if he becomes president. His election, they say, would trigger a backlash -- whites rising up, a revolution of sorts -- that they think is long overdue.

    He'd be a "visual aid," says former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke, in trying to bring others around to the group's view that whites have lost control of America. Obama's election, says another, would jar whites into action, writing letters and handing out pamphlets rather than sitting around complaining.

    Not sure it would would be a white black thing but it will definitely wake up the conservatives once the country gets taxed beyond recognition when Obama takes over..... hopefully. Maybe we will get back to people taking responsibility for themselves instead of blaming someone else for their misfortune.
