Dudes, it's obvious! It's totally Obama's fault that the OP has repeatedly used
"mixed-race douchebag" to describe Obama on this forum. And if you think that's a shitty thing to write, well, that just proves YOU are the REAL racist! YOU are the one preventing racial healing! Goddamn PC SJW liberal racists stopping me from my god-given right to say "mixed-race douchebag"! How un-American! You racist freedom-haters you!!

The amount of racism in the US hasn't changed; it has just become more visible. Obama has done nothing to fuel racism; it so happens that his dark skin enrages racists.
Jamelle Boule had a piece about this in Slate
In the national shouting match over racism, discrimination, and American policing that we’ve conducted since the tragedies in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Falcon Heights, Minnesota, and Dallas, one refrain stands out from all the others in its oily tendentiousness. Barack Obama has made the racial divide worse.
There’s a good chance you’ve heard this before. It sprouted up in the fever swamps of the right wing [AHEM!] after the president gave his sympathy to the family of Trayvon Martin in the wake of the teenager's death in 2012...
To blame Obama for discord—rather than the actual abuses and inequalities that drive the reaction—is a classic example of anti-anti-racism, wherein efforts to address and combat racial bias are reckoned a larger problem than the bias itself. And in the same way, Obama’s willingness to speak to and for black Americans as a black American marks him as the real racist, maligned for acknowledging the reality of racism. It’s a bizarro view of American life where racial discord is caused by speaking out about discrimination, not by discrimination itself.
