8. Racism.

It's still alive and well no matter what gender. That "dark-skinned visual" is much too much for some to absorb.

I do applaud ALL of the white population who enthusiastically supported President Obama and voted for him. For many many decades, about the best that a black candidate could get was about 25% - 30% of the white vote in those areas of the country where blacks were even competitive, so that extra 10 - 15% that turned out for candidates like Barack Obama nationally, have been most heartening.
