At the Guardian I point out that "Liberal journalists are combing the back roads of America looking for evidence of the resurgent racism being generated by the prospect of a black man becoming president. The striking thing is how little they've turned up." Despite headlines like "Ugly reception for Obama" and "Racist attacks on Obama growing more heated," the journalists have had to go to Danville, Va., and the Arkansas-Missouri border to find a few individual instances of racist attacks. Nothing like what the Catholic JFK faced in 1960.
