  1. Actually, I would have agreed with that pessimistic sentiment a few years ago. But when Obama was RE-ELECTED I knew the majority of white Americans had made a strategic move toward what was actually in their best interests in stead of what looked like them. McCain and Romney were not going to offer any real support to the struggling middle and lower class in this country, and people recognized that.

    The few crazies left, holding tightly to their confederate flags, are actually the noticeable minority. But the solution is WE MUST REGISTER AND VOTE!!!
