also disappointed
One...I shouldnt read the Macon Telegraph message boards at all, the level of ignorance that spreads is disgusting...

I am also disappointed at the level of underlying racism that I have seen amongst the whites I know. It is sad to see that you still see color lines. It is depressing that while we should be celebrating cultural diversity and not looking at skin color at all, there are so many who are complaining about "uppity" blacks...come on...
People are celebrating in jest in many cases, I have many black friends who have said nothing of their seeming new dominance...as if that election were about that.

Every pereson I know who voted for Pres. Elect Obama voted for him due to party platform reasons or out of a frustration with the last eight years. Out of every black person I know...not a single one voted for him because he was black.

I know plenty of whites though that DID NOT vote for him because he was black....I also know many who are proclaiming the "end times" because his election....

Let it go people and lets worry about things that actually matter, like the health and state of our country.

We went down to the Democrat HQ to watch and celebrate and we noticed that the blacks were downstairs and the whites were upstairs. There were two celebrations happening, it seemed. I'm sure it's not even a conscious thing that people do that, but the behavior hasn't gone away yet.

Our local newspaper has a message board that is full of closet racists that get pretty blatant when they dont have to identify themselves.
