Obama doesn't have a problem with whites...

...Appalachia has a problem with Obama.

This piece posted on Kos is quite enlightening. If it proves out, then I may have to back-peddle on my assertion that working class white folks over 50 inherently dislike or inexplicably fear black people. For now I still believe it, because I know some of those people (you know who you are), but then some of those people are actually close to or are from Appalachia.

The positive outlook from this is that Appalachia is not all that important in the elections. They do not even make up 5% of America. I can only hope that the deep racist attitudes that dominate this region is not so prominent in the rest of the country.
