Racism doesn't end with the election of a black president. Already President-Elect Obama has been the target of two assassination plots by white supremists and was the most heavily guarded Presidential candidate in U.S. history. He gave his acceptance speech at Grant Park from behind a two-inch thick bullet-proof glass and his security team includes a Police S.W.A.T. team of heavily armed guards. Family outings are a thing of the past. This is the price of being the first black president in our history.
