    The politics of race moved from the fringes to the front page last week in the wake of Mitt Romney's eggshell exit poll results -- whites made up a remarkable 88 percent of his votes, versus 56 percent of the president's. The New York Times dissected the Republican Party's demographics problem, and Fox News pundit Bill O'Reilly bluntly bemoaned the end of "traditional America" and "the white establishment." And, well outside the mainstream media, a deafening clatter arose across the land in the furious keystrokes of America's white nationalists.

    Unsurprisingly, the re-election of Barack Obama reverberated across the spectrum of far-right extremism in the United States, where most see the president as an enemy of the Constitution who is planning to confiscate their guns during his second term. But while many vented anger and fear, some ideologically motivated racists saw a silver lining and -- detecting an opportunity -- reached out.

    Just before the election, Gregory Hood, a prolific online writer with a single-minded focus on whiteness, wrote that Romney had to lose in order to make white Americans understand that they have lost control of the country. When his wish was fulfilled, he wasted little time taking advantage. The resulting essay, "A White Nationalist Memo to White Male Republicans," was cross-posted on several extremist websites and forums.

    Very pleasing.
    When a predominantly white country like America appears and acts apologetic for its race, it deserves to be utterly ruined and dismantled by the people of the Negro race.

    Division of any society on ethnic lines is never a pleasant thing. While I am a staunch critic of US government policies, I definitely do not want the people to hurt each other.

    Moreover, I don't think America deserves to be destroyed, by anyone.

    In principle, I would agree. Innocents independent of what race/colour should not get hurt.
    The present American setup deserves a thorough review, if not a dismantle. Agreed the people shouldn't be hurt in the process, but in the course of revolution, everyone suffers to an extent.

    Negro race is functional part of US society.

    What is wrong if one of them becomes President?

    Extremists & radicals are nuts.

    They should first decide whom they are against? Obama or his race?

    The white supremacists dont like any other color. So if you are in any such place, you'd be in serious trouble if such nut jobs rule the roost.

    Number 1 the USA is not predominantly white, people of other races out number whites. Racist organizations like the KKK are rare and very few in number. Out of 315 million americas there estimated to be about 5 to 8000 Klan. Usually if there is a KKK rally about 25 freaky lookiing people show up and usually they have about 100 police protecting them from the crowded that gathers. The last tiime the KKK got violent they were proscuted then the organization was sued and lost about every trhing they had.

    Romney won 62 % vote among white men and 56 % vote among white women, overall he got 59% of white vote against Obama's 39. So he clearly won the demographics that constitute around 72% of US population, but among the other 28% he got massacred (7% from Blacks and 27% from Hispanics) and eventually lost the election by a big margin.

    There is a lesson in this for India too, India's religious demographics is quite similar to US racial demographics. If someone needs to win an election in a diverse country, He/She needs to appeal beyond a single community.

    Whites have voted for Obama in Hordes.....Why blame Gangsta Niggas or Fence jumping drug peddling Latinos.....Obama attracts various left leaning arm char liberal votes....they are surely at the helm of destroying the social and demographic supremacy of the whites; moreover, there are hell lods of dumb Americans including college educated yuppies who believe that getting multiculturalism and more immigrants into US will make US look more colorful and acceptable......what fools!

    This post has true insight. I hope to read a lot more posts from you on Indian politics!


    Just my two paises, I think the US election has another great lesson for Indian democracy. You will notice that, after the election, the rancor of the campaign ended, with Romney accepting defeat and Obama graciously offering to work with him, for the benefit of the nation. In India, this never happens. Politicians are at each others' throats, busy speculating on how the other 'rigged' votes or raking up the muck about each other. This has led to a politics of violence in the country at the grassroot levels: since allegations are flying anyway- and without consequence- might as well make hay while the sun shines. And so, 'strongmen' replace the politicians where campaigning is concerned, and eventually become 'politicians' themselves. One could argue that the stakes are higher in India at a more primitive level and that a more punctilious politics comes from an enlightened citizenry with the entrenchment of rules and institutions.

    But, as the eternal-optimist and one that is thinking of a shorter-term solution, I think one way to expedite that process is to adopt the U.S system of live televised debates. Doing so has significantly improved the rhetoric at a macropolitical level in some S American countries. Brazil and Chile are two examples. And I think the same should work here. The media is now pretty strong in this country, in fact acting as a third 'pillar' if you will, and when politicians find themselves perched atop this pillar, they' are usually on their best behavior. Even if it means they are congenial only for a short while, it takes away from the public disparaging of each other, that in turn forces the parties to engage in more 'demonstrative' ways of highlighting the legitimateness of their policies, and substitutes it with clear, reasoned debate that has a potential victor.

    This could, from the national level, eventually be replicated at the grassroots- once enough momentum is generated- in some form or other, even if not televised, that holds the politicians more accountable for their words, their acts and their allegations- becoming one element in a more 'sane' form of campaigning that eventually proliferates and rubs off on the political process itself.

    In any case, live televised debates can't hurt and will force the politicians to be more articulate and clear about their policies. We already see a sample version of that when spokespersons from across the political spectrum come together to deliberate an issue on informal Newshour debates. Formalizing them, in the way that the U.S does, would bring an element of 'civility' into our politics.

    But would you say the appeal needs to be different?

    Understood the electoral systems are different: with first-past-the post and proportionate representation requiring very different strategies.

    But can any electoral strategy in India afford to alienate one community- or conglomerate of communities so entirely and patronize the other community, when the latter community is divided (among others) along ideological lines?
