    so i can't help you there, but i tend to agree that when dealing with the first black president, you are by nature going to be dealing with a whole lot of other "firsts" as well. It will be hard to predict things for Obama based on trends from the past. And his election (and the subsequent disrespect we've seen) has really brought out the crazies and polarized us on a level I haven't seen before. I was born in the late 70s, and even though i have always lived in the deep south, I really haven't personally experienced that much racism. But I will say that his election has opened my eyes to what still exists and it is very very real. It will be interesting to see what happens next. I'm watching very very closely.
