But make no mistake, when Obama runs for re-election, he most likely will enjoy much the same level of black support that he got in 2008. And what if he were to be defeated? What would be the reaction of the African-American community the day after the election? There's no reason to presume it would be anything but tranquil, as it is in America following any Election Day. Unless, that is, Obama's possible defeat followed a perceived pattern of those who oppose his policies indulging in racist hijinks such as comparing the president or his wife to a chimp. My guess is that such ugliness might then lead to a post-election situation that could tear the nation apart.

Woah... wait a minute here.... So because the president and his wife have a few cruel jokes told about them (as have other presidents) we should be sure we don't offend the black vote because they will tear the nation apart? Is it just me or does the specter of that threat send chills down your spine? We need to elect whom they want or things will go disastrous? I don't like that one bit

That general thought was thrown out during the 2008 elections, so it is nothing new.

Actually, I see it as an opportunity.

An opportunity to finally set this country straight, in our lifetimes, so that our descendants need not suffer this nonsense. Thus, when liberal hacks write this nonsense, my first thought is "bring it".
