Local Newspapers Cover Rising Number of Racist Anti-Obama Actions in Small Towns

There are 4 comments on the www.editorandpublisher.com story from Nov 12, 2008, titled Local Newspapers Cover Rising Number of Racist Anti-Obama Actions in Small Towns. In it, www.editorandpublisher.com reports that:

Many conservative pundits and Republican officeholders on the national stage have reacted to the election of Barack Obama as a promising step forward in the history of race relations and democracy in the U.S. But gaining much less coverage from the national media are local reactions that are far less accepting and positive.

Away from the spotlight, many local newspapers around the country have covered recent incidents of racially-motivated reactions to last week’s election, from flags hung upside down to the dangling of nooses and cross-burnings. As we noted last week, a couple in northern New Jersey who had an Obama sign on their front lawn woke up to find the charred remains of a cross out there. Local residents today announced a "unity march" to protest the still-unsolved incident.

Sorry but no president or congress is able to force people to like other people... We will soon find out why human races stayed away from other human species... Humans are of one family, but different species.. like monkey and gorilla are from same family but different species.
