And they tell us that it isn't really about the color of his skin. For years, we've heard that, and we’ve seen plenty of things to indicate otherwise. But boy, did they let loose after the re-election of President Obama. Via Jezebel, Denise Helms' post to Facebook:

Then there were the haters on Twitter on election night:
There was an abundance of hate speech on Twitter after Obama's reelection, with people hurling violent and racial epithets. Many of those tweeters were teenagers whose public Twitter accounts feature their real names and advertise their participation in the sports programs at their respective high schools.
F--king parents need to teach their children better than this. We are unbelievably fortunate to have a president who is not only a highly intelligent human being, but one who is a deeply caring individual, who is and sees himself as a man of the people, not of the ruling class. For anyone to attack this man, President Obama, not on the basis of his politics, but on the basis of the color of his skin, just makes me feel a deep sadness at the utter ignorance displayed.
This just makes me so sick.
