19. that is absurd
South Carolina is way more racist than those two states, yet we are the heroes for starting the big momentum for Obama's run for the nomination. The only reason that happened is half the voters in SC were AA. I bet he didn't poll as well with white voters here as he did in WV or will in KY. Keep a little perspective.
