I feel like racisim was pretty well on the way out until the Obamas entered the whitehouse. They played the race card hard to get in there and used it the entire time to keep themselves in the news. They are still in the news routinely stirring up trouble regarding race issues. Now anytime some scumbag person of color gets harassed, beat up or killed (in line of duty) by a white cop, the cops get crucified. If anyone steps up to support the white officer, they are immediately called racist.
