Some said it was only a matter of time...but really it's only a matter of hate

Authorities with the ATF announced today that they foiled the plot of 2 neo-Nazi skinheads to assassinate Obama and 102 other Black people.

There was just a post today on a blog I found (Kat's Litterbox) about how people are silently and not-so-silently wondering when the racism in this country will threaten Obama's life.

I presume that this is probably not the first plan to assassinate Obama, and it won't be the last. Therein lies the tragedy.

So for those of you who say racism is dead and we're in a post-racial world, I hope you've just had a wake up call regarding the state of racial affairs in the U.S. today. The thing is that racism is here and it's often not this blatant. Usually it comes as attacks to affirmative action or insults to "flashy" Black leaders, rarely does it become so brilliantly clear as this.

To say the color of one's skin should not matter is the truth. To deny that it does is a lie.
