I am a very open minded person. I feel like I'm also very liberal in thinking. I have never felt such segregation as I have today. I have heard comments left and right talking about the election, race, history, the future and it scares me. I have ALWAYS accepted everyone of every race and have never started any type of controversy. So why are we seeing so many people make racial "observations" or "comments"? To think we have grown SO much (not nearly enough) since the 60's and now I almost feel like we are taking a step back, when this should be a step forward. Does anyone else understand where I'm coming from? As BO stated many times, we are the UNITED states of America, so why am I not feeling it?

There will be more segregation with the OBAMA presidency.
Socialist Blacks will think that they now own the world.
The Capitalist Whites will just keep to themselves and go on with life.
The divide between those who want freedom and those who don't will be greater.
The capitalist people will only hire people and communicate with people like themselves.
The socialist people will decry the capitalist people and will be employees and servants of the government.

There will be segregation - capitalist group and socialist group.

Bryan, is there a problem? Want to talk it out? Seems like you are taking this election maybe a little too personally? I didn't vote for Obama, but I accept that he is our President now. I DO still live in this country and LOVE it!

Though you may feel "post-racial" many do not. I think it is a good thing that we have these conversations in the open for once.
As far as talking about the election in racial terms, it is a momentous occasion! If Hillary Clinton had won, we would be talking about sex instead of race. Ignoring racial divisions doesn't make them go away. Let's have an open dialogue about this for once.

People who think Obama will "bring us together" are totally naive. Things are about to get ugly in some parts of this country I'm afraid.
