Ahora leo aquí (Elect Obama, Or Else: Police Prepare For Unrest) que la policía norteamericana se prepara para afrontar disturbios raciales tras las elecciones, gane o pierda el candidato «de color». Una selección:
Police departments in cities across the country are beefing up their ranks for Election Day, preparing for possible civil unrest and riots after the historic presidential contest.
Public safety officials said in interviews with The Hill that the election, which will end with either the nation’s first black president or its first female vice president, demanded a stronger police presence.
Some worry that if Barack Obama loses and there is suspicion of foul play in the election, violence could ensue in cities with large black populations. Others based the need for enhanced patrols on past riots in urban areas (following professional sports events) and also on Internet rumors.
Cities that have suffered unrest before, such as Detroit, Chicago, Oakland and Philadelphia, will have extra police deployed.
In Oakland, the police will deploy extra units trained in riot control, as well as extra traffic police, and even put SWAT teams on standby.
The Oakland police last faced big riots in 2003 when the Raiders lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Super Bowl. Officials are bracing themselves in case residents of Oakland take Obama’s loss badly.
Carville, who served as a senior political adviser to former President Bill Clinton, said that many Democrats would be very angry if Obama loses.
«A lot of Democrats would have a great deal of angst and anger,» said Carville, who predicted that on Election Day «the voting system all around the country is going to be very stressed because there’s going to be enormous turnout.»
«If [Obama] is elected, like with sports championships, people may go out and riot,» said Bob Parks, an online columnist and black Republican candidate for state representative in Massachusetts. «If Barack Obama loses there will be another large group of people who will assume the election was stolen from him….. This will be an opportunity for people who want to commit mischief.»
Police officials in Chicago, where Obama will hold a Nov. 4 rally, and Philadelphia are also preparing for Election Day.
Atención a esta última: piensa organizar una concentración el mismo día de las elecciones… Me parece una tremenda imprudencia.
God Bless America, que falta le va a hacer, porque esta es la «esperanza y cambio» que el primo de Obama ha llevado a Kenia (Qué está pasando en Kenia? Las dos O = Obama y Odinga):
Él no se explica que sucedió en ese país que desde principios de año se está destruyendo, reina el caos y el pánico. Se incendian casas y propiedades y el asesinato está a la orden del día

Para acabar aquí (Racismo) refutan ese razonamiento falaz según el cual los americanos tienen que votar a un individuo por el color de su piel para demostrara que no son racistas. Y nos ponen esta portada:
