The Sad Truth is that racism isn't over

Two things.

1) Racism isn't dead, it just took a nap and let Barack sneak into office.
2) This might make some racism more violent in the short term, because of people who feel they need to strike back.

Idealists: Racism Doesn't End With Our First Black President

There is no doubt that Barack Obama's victory in the 2008 Presidential
election is an incredibly historic one; the race barrier for the top job in the
nation has been broken, signifying a giant step forward for the country as a
whole. But the notion that Obama's victory signifies some type of end to all
racism in America is a ridiculous one; while the country has made progress by
electing an African-American leader, there are still signs
that many citizens in the country aren't happy with that decision at all. And
it's not based on Obama's policies, tax plans, or "elitist" background: it's
based on the color of this skin.
