Barack Obama Inspiring Racism Growth

American’s will soon be voting for the next President and the choice is Black and White. No matter what your personal opinion is, race is a factor in this election. Barack Obama has reached this point so far because of his race, even though his camp denounces anyone that points this out and labels them racists. Well it seems a group of Americans, White Supremicists and Neo Nazis that has lost power and numbers over the past 30 years is rearing its head and interest in these groups is growing. I would imagine over the next few months memberships will start flying.

This could be a factor in the upcomming elections that Obama did not count out. Now these folks defintely do not agree with McCain and probably would not vote for him if Hillary had the Democratic nomination. However be assured they will vote for him because they will not accept a black president.

Don Black of Stormfront supported Ron Paul because Paul thinks the Amendments to the Constitution other than the Bill of Rights should be repealled. That would take away the rights of every black American and essential legalize Slavery. So you can bet he is going to start promoting McCain. I would imagine the suit wearing racists like the KKK’s David Dukes are going to be running some behind the scenes campaigns as well.

Sen. Barack Obama’s victory in the Democratic primaries, celebrated as a symbol of racial progress and cultural unity, has also sparked an increase in racist and white supremacist activity, mainly on the Internet, according to leaders of hate groups and the organizations that track them.

Neo-Nazi, skinhead and segregationist groups have reported gains in numbers of

visitors to their Web sites and in membership since the senator from Illinois secured the Democratic nomination June 3. His success has aroused a community of racists, experts said, concerned by the possibility of the country’s first black president.

“I haven’t seen this much anger in a long, long time,” said Billy Roper, a 36-year-old who runs a group called White Revolution in Russellville, Ark. “Nothing has awakened normally complacent white Americans more than the prospect of America having an overtly nonwhite president.”

Such groups have historically inflated their influence for self-promotion, and, as an intimidation technique, they refused to provide exact membership numbers or open their meetings to a reporter. Leaders acknowledged that their numbers remain very small — “the flat-globe society still has more people than us,” Roper said. But experts said their claims reveal more than hyperbole this time.

“The truth is, we’re finding an explosion in these kinds of hateful sentiments on the Net, and it’s a growing problem,” said Deborah Lauter, civil rights director for the Anti-Defamation League, which monitors hate-group activity. “There are probably thousands of Web sites that do this now. I couldn’t even tell you how many are out there because it’s growing so fast.”

Earlier this month, Obama’s campaign launched a Web site to defuse the false rumors that hatemongers spread on the Internet.

But on a Web site run out of a house in West Palm Beach, Fla., the other side is also fighting.

Don Black spends 16 hours each day on his laptop computer reading hundreds of derogatory Obama comments posted on Stormfront.org, a Web site with the motto “white pride world wide.” Black, a former Ku Klux Klan leader, launched the site in 1995 to create a central meeting place for the white-power movement. With Obama having secured enough delegates for the nomination, Stormfront, he says, has begun to fulfill his vision.

A site that drew a few thousand visitors per day in 2002 has expanded into Black’s full-time job, attracting more than 40,000 unique users each day who can post on 54 different message boards, he said. Black has enlisted 40 moderators and his 19-year-old son to help run Stormfront.

Posters on Stormfront complain that Obama represents the end of “white rule” and the beginning of “multiculturalism.” They fear that he will promote affirmative action, support illegal immigration and help render whites, who make up two-thirds of the U.S. population, “the new minority.”

“I get nonstop e-mails and private messages from new people who are mad as hell about the possibility of Obama being elected,” said Black, a white-power activist since the 1970s. “White people, for a long time, have thought of our government as being for us, and Obama is the best possible evidence that we’ve lost that. This is scaring a lot of people who maybe never considered themselves racists, and it’s bringing them over to our side.”

Almost all white-power leaders said they are benefiting from the rise in recruits. Roper said White Revolution receives about 10 new applicants each week, more than double the norm.
