First of all, I don’t wish this upon anyone, but if Obama is elected I really think some redneck white racist may target him (NOT ME). Here in Arkansas, I have heard some of the hillbille bumpkins views on Obama and many are less than thrilled, and sadly, many are less than tolerant.
So, just a scenario, if (Heaven Forbid) something happens to Obama, due to a white person, do you see race relations in this country going to complete shit? I know they aren’t anywhere near perfect right now, but you can’t deny that things have gotten a good deal better in the last 50 years. IMO, if this were to happen, blacks and whites might as well move to different sides of the Country, because that would be a bruise that could never heal.
(I know that sounds kinda bad to compare 1 person to years of slavery and injustice, but I really do think it would set us back decades.)
Seeing how we have never had a black president, I am really interested in seeing how he, and his time in office will be treated, assuming he does get elected. This isn’t meant to offend anyone BTW. And I do realize that most normal people (on all sides of the race issue) don’t hate a group of people based on one individuals behavior, but it is an interesting subject.
It sucks that this issue even could come up, considering that I don’t feel this issue relates to McCain at all (Sad for America, even tho there is always a serious risk for this to happen to a president, Obama may be on a whole new level).
