The Arrogance of Being President While Black

The author of this piece is unknown, but many believe that he is a white male.  It’s interesting, please take a look.

I don’t think anyone was under some real illusion that the election of Barack Obama actually means the end of racism in America . I’m pretty sure that the president-elect knew it better than anyone. After all, he saw it every day, from the moment he announced his candidacy. To some degree, he saw it within his own party during the primaries. And he saw it in all ugliness during the general election. For half of this country, he was "That One". No matter how big and clear his victory was. No matter how smart he is. No matter how decent he is. No matter what a true patriot he is. No matter how optimistic and positive his vision for America was. All that didn’t matter. Because at the end of the day, he was still black.

    Correct me if I am wrong in what I am about to say. But Dr. Martin Luther King once said some where that “white people are inherit racist in their nature”. Which to my understanding that they are borned into it and to some degrtee because they inherited it from those who brought them in tis world and those who surround them selvs with hate in this world. Could it also mean that they are so racist in a subtle nature and not even know it? Could we go a step further and say that white folks are genectially racist? Would that be racist of me to say or even suggest?
