    It's because of examples like this why I think I understand the concept of "race baiting" less and less, but I'm guessing that Wiretap News' depictions of these folks is what real race baiting is.

    I love this night. I'm kind of a politician/election day fanatic. Although it goes in streaks. Sometimes I get really sick of all the bickering and tune out for months at a time. I voted after work today and it was nice to see many people in my community out and participating. I don't care who they voted for it was just nice to see a lot of people out there. I've been geeked about this for a while now.

    I personally believe that the large turnout they keep talking about on TV is a good sign for the challenger if in fact we have an incumbent who has a less than enthusiastic base, which is the case this year, imo. If people were excited about the incumbent I think the turnout would be lower as the challenging party would be in essence conceding. Unless...people are just starting to participate more as it gets easier to vote.

    As far as the New Black Panther hanging out "opening doors for little old ladies" at the polling site...His presence is most certainly a sign of intimidation. Their whole goal as an organization is to intimidate. It's why they dress in military garb. He may not be acting in an intimidating fashion but passive intimidation is still intimidation.

    I said that I was frightened through my screen, what else do you want from me?

    He doesn't seem to be doing very well at being a scary black guy in that clip though.

    You know, I think I would rather be a man than a god . We don't need anyone to believe in us. We just keep going anyhow. It's what we do.

    Wow, I was definitely wrong about this election. Congrats to Obama, hopefully he can do some good things over the next four years, he has plenty of issues to tackle.
