That doesn't matter. What matters is the reaction Obama's race baiting and class warfare gets. He's killing the Jacksonian Democrats with his environmental and energy policies too. The rats didn't do very well in the elections of 1968 and 1972.
Yes, it does matter, because it’s only those who either remember the 60s, or who have a strong understanding of the actual history of the 60s (and the 70s, to boot), who have sufficient understanding to know what the inevitable consequences are when you start a race-war. Those who do not are all too susceptible to being coopted into thinking that they’re participating in just another virtuous fight for liberation.
