Black America Web: Barack Obama's Rise Increases Hate Groups

BAW: White Racist Groups Increase Membership, Activity in Wake of Potential Obama Presidency

The serious hatin’ on Barack Obama is in full force among racists in cyberspace and has spread to countless computers in homes across America.

Since Obama defeated Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary last month, clinched the Democratic presidential nomination and could become America’s first black president in November, racist groups, white supremacy organizations, neo-nazis and skinheads have all increased their activity on the Internet and stepped up their hateful online denunciations of Obama.

It’s a hate experts say is now reaching a fever pitch.

"I haven't seen this much anger in a long, long time," Billy Roper, a 36-year-old who runs a group called White Revolution in Russellville, Arkansas, told The Washington Post. "Nothing has awakened normally complacent white Americans more than the prospect of America having an overtly non-white president."
