No doubt.  Worst mistake ever made after the Civil War was allowing South 
Carolina back into the union as a state, rather than maintaining the 
military occupation.

The frenzy whipped up by the money- backed white religious right is truly 
remarkable in its racism, including threats to "hunt Obama"  made as jokes 
by candidates running for office.  Hey, I thought threats against the 
president, even as jokes, were a federal offense.  Somebody needs to tell 
the FBI that Obama is president, no matter what the cross-dressing ghost of 
J. Edgar Hoover thinks.

Three things enable this--  the fear and panic of the white 
property-holders bailing furiously to stay afloat in their little dinghys, 
the passivity of the working class, AND the Obama administrations's 
determination to follow through on Bush's policies to maintain that 
passivity.  Most recently, the Obama administration will institute the 
"E-verify" program that requires companies and contactors doing work for the 
Feds to submit names and IDs of employees for verification of legal 
residency status.
