Racist Alabama Legacy Shadows High Courtís Ruling on Voting Law
To Frank Butch Ellis, the racist culture that defined Alabama 50 years ago is gone. Integrated neighborhoods are common, and blacks are winning local elections with white support, he says.
Its not an issue anymore with us here, the white lawyer said from his office across the street from the Shelby County courthouse in Columbiana. To Harry Jones, a black minister, the racism has just moved underground. Shelby County has modernized the good ole boy syndrome, he said at his church in Calera, 10 miles away.

It's the economy
Bringing out the same old, same old.
The public grows tired of the same of crap when they are paying high gas prices, high food prices, can't find a job, facing a crumbling educational system, can't afford a home.
The democrats control the White House and the Senate, the republicans the House and still there is NO LEADERSHIP from our President.

Obama just has to be black and Democrat. Any solutions or leadership by him are optional, squeezed in between golf games and parties.
The future isn't a concern to him, he will rack up $100,000 to $250,000+ per speech after he leaves office. More than likely he'll leave Chicago and move elsewhere, some place where the gunfire is much lower.
It will be up to those who follow him in office to make things work. His only goal is making sure things do not go to total hell while he is in the White House.

The KKK killed 3,446 blacks in 86 years, but black-on-black murders surpass that number in the United States every six months, according to the Tuskegee Institute.
While black males account for only 6% of the total population, they accounted for more than 50% of the homicides in 2010, according to the Centers for Disease and Control and Prevention.
In just one year, black-on-black homicides surpassed the combined causalities of U.S. soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan since 2001.
