While the election of Barack Obama has been a source of enormous pride for many in the black community, there's another aspect of his election that's been extremely disconcerting, which is the unhinged racism and overt disrespect the first black president has elicited among not only the electorate, but those elected officials serving alongside him in government. As such, the last eight years have been emotionally fraught for the black community as they watched the level of racially-tinged disrespect not only intensify, but one of the key proponents of that disrespect become the presidential standard-bearer for one of the major parties. Read this piece at CNN by John Blake that examines what the black community won't miss about the Obama years.
