Racism is kept alive and well by Cretan articles like this one. It would seem the only people who really consider that we have a "Black" president rather than just a president are blacks who keep on keeping on with this just about faded away issue of black and white. What would they tell their kids if a White president lost his bid for re-election? The answer should be the same.

Racism is fact of life. This article puts it into perspective.

That's true, but we have to examine where we would be as a people had LBJ and his crowd not started this welfare state, AA , set aside etc mentality simply to buy the black vote...I served with black guys all of my life and have good friends among them. I know what they can do when left to their own devices...The blacks that we conservatives support and embrace are the proof of it. Whites are sick and tired of being sucked dry by welfare programs and sick of being called racists for complaining about it. What racism that exists is caused by blacks who still think like victims because it pays and expect the rest of us to support them, accept their crudeness and crime ..That group wants respect, but refuses to earn it...They get none from me.

Yes, it's a fact of life that when we went into a Spanish speaking only restaurant in Texas no one waited on us. Once in St. Louis we were told to 'eat somewhere else' by what appeared to be a black owned and operated establishment - we happily left (at least they didn't seat us then spit in our food) Yes, racism is a fact of life and I've had worse done to me by petulant blacks than having them stick their tongue out and call me names.

Amusing, but has nothing to do with my post.

What do I tell my black child if Barack Obama, America's first black president, loses his bid for re-election? This is a question many parents are asking themselves -- especially those who would blame the loss on racism.

Jubilant black parents on the front pages of newspapers, the day after Barack Obama won the presidency in 2008, said things like, "for the first time" they could "sincerely" say to their children that a black person could realistically aspire to become president of the United States.

The New York Times wrote: "That a new day had dawned was immediately...
