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.

    Prophetic! Didn’t know whether to laugh or cry! Contrary to popular belief, most ‘black men’ really did ‘hope for change’, but got strange instead. Furthermore, we all do not ‘lie, steal, cheat, and eat pigs feet’!

    Thank you Sir. My faith in ‘truth’ has been restored.
