Overt Racism is Alive in The U.S. But Contained.



Overt Racism is alive in the U.S. but contained.
How else to explain that in 22% of U.S counties less people voted for Obama than voted for Kerry four years earlier - despite 4 disastrous Republican years, a tanking economy, and a countrywide 5 point gain for Obama vs Kerry. And almost all those counties where in the South and the Ozarks. Why would Kerry voters refuse to vote for Obama? Hard to explain it in any other way.

Obama is perceived to be more pro-abortion and in Kerry's time loading the supreme court was not the issue.

It turns out the New York Times agrees with my analysis in this posting.

See http://www.nytimes.com/2008/11/11/us/politics/11south.html?partner=rss&emc=rss

Best statistic: In Alabama in 2004 80% of whites voted for Bush. In 2008 90% voted for McCain.
