  • yes it has. it has shown that racism is alive and well in here. However if you judge by the popular vote you can see that much of the bigots are here on CM and are a small minority. they just post their hate over and over.

  • nope. I think those idiots never went into hiding. A bigot is always a bigot. I voted against him for his WAY liberal views. Nothing more. I REALLY liked him when he was first interviewed on Oprah but the more I heard his positions I just couldn't do it.

  • They are almost always anonymous, and I would expect nothing less from a bigot. There are a few racists who aren't ashamed though (I could name names...but I'm not sure it's necessary) and I am always shocked at their gall. They must have a HUGE pair!

  • Just becuase you dont agree with them doesnt make them idoits actually. People can have their opions on a black president can't they? This is new for everyone, Some people like it some peple HATE it... You will have to deal with it. This is just the begining too...
    Sorry to say this but there is still such a thing as the KKK and its real. They arent going to shut up.

  • Anon 10:50 you hit the nail on the head. Racism is sadly alive and well within CM and the rest of our nation. But, it is dying. Tuesday proved that. I am shocked, though, at the number of women posting that are so fully of hatred, racism, and ignorance. To all the women of color who will read this, to all the others who will not, to anyone not afraid of skin pigmintation different than your own, welcome to the new world.
