When Senator Barack Obama became the presumptive Democratic candidate earlier this year, many of the local right wing pundits and bloggers declared that to be the end of racism.
What a load of garbage they are spewing.
If anything racism is coming more and more prevalent as Obama gets closer to a victory in the fall. We have seen it from the likes of local media squawkers like Mark Belling to insulting t-shirts. Other Side has a post showing that racism is alive and well on Faux News, which is anything but fair and balanced.
There's the multiple references to Obama as the "Chocolate Jesus." Some racists are at least not as blatant about their feelings, and try to use different code words for their hatred.
We've also seen Michelle Obama being constantly attacked, portraying her as a terrorist, or Fox News' infamous Obama Baby Mama piece.
Today, we've seen that a South Carolina judge has been indefinitely kicked off the bench for making crude racial remarks.
Obviously, not all conservatives, or all people that oppose Obama are racists. But for anyone to deny that there is blatant racism going on, or that things are getting worse as we get nearer the election, well, they're either liars or are racists themselves and just don't have the insight to be honest about it.
