Here we are only nine months into the ubiquitously proclaimed "post-racial presidency," and all that promised harmony among the races has disappeared faster than a Chicago minute.

All it took for addled minds to conjure shadows of racism behind every whitey tree in the whole American forest were voices raised in dissent over the President's far-left policies.

No sooner had congress' summer recess begun -- without the President's hoped-for passage of Obamacare -- than the racist cries began their assent. Nancy Pelosi threw down the "swastika" gauntlet aimed at townhall attendees, which essentially tarred those citizens with white-supremacy slander.

In early August an African-American MSNBC newsman actually declared that the word, "socialist," being used to define Obama policies, was a new "code word" for "N**ger."

Then, Joe Wilson's impolite, but factually accurate blurt of "You lie," aimed at the President's claim regarding illegal alien coverage in the healthcare bill, was hailed as racially motivated by liberals at every level.

Maureen Dowd penned a wicked screed, swearing she heard Wilson use the word, "Boy," even though no one else did - not even the recording devices. Jimmy Carter doddered forth with his feeble opinion in public, concluding that of course, the outpouring dissent had to be racist. Even Bill Cosby chimed in on the so-called white-racist motivations.

Interestingly enough, before the election, far-left feminist icon, Erica Jong, gave an interview to the Italian press, details of which were reported by the U.K. Telegraph. Jong was taking daily doses of Valium, she said, just to deal with her "pre-election anxiety."

If Obama were not elected, she contended, then it would start a "second civil war" and "blood would run in the streets." Jong confided that her writer friends were equally traumatized, that Naomi Wolf was calling her every day, that Ken Follett was "extremely worried" and that Jane Fonda had sent her an email claiming that she "cried all night and can't cure her ailing back for all the stress that has reduced her to a bundle of nerves."

Well, we had the election. White America came through. Now, where's all that absolution, honey?

From anyone's pre-election calculations, an Obama presidency held the promise of relieving America's white citizens of their centuries-long guilt over slavery and civil-rights injustices. Such, however, has not been at all the case and hating whitey is making an unexpected comeback.

There was President Obama's own "teaching moment" on race wherein he reminded us we are still a racist nation where white police officers act "stupidly" against black professor-types just because of the color of their skin.

Even the beer-fest afterward left divisive hard feelings and rancor among unjustly accused police officers.
