Electoral racism in its most naked, egregious and aggressive form is the unwillingness of white Americans to vote for a black candidate regardless of the candidate’s qualifications, ideology or party. This form of racism was a standard feature of American politics for much of the twentieth century.
His re-election bid, however, may indicate that a more insidious form of racism has come to replace it.
so if he loses it is because white liberals just voted for him the first time to prove they weren't racist... ?
from the comments..
"Barack Obama proved that he can can be as good as any white president because he showed he can sell out the black folk down the river as any white president has ever done!" Sell out all his constituency as well. That is why he lost the support of those who voted for him. Obama keeps stabbing us in the back.
