people like these will get to 'know' him and see how he's working for the people -- including them.

Much of their racism is fear based, I believe. There's what, like only 5% African Americans in the entire state of Kentucky?

I recall seeing a show years ago on skinheads. One kid (and he was just a kid) said he didn't WANT to hate anybody, but he was shown how blacks were taking all the jobs that should go to white folks, and he was afraid he wouldn't be able to make a good living. Fear.

So hopefully with a President Obama in the WH, these people will learn there's nothing to fear from other races.

And that is my American Dream. :7 :patriot: :hi:
