      When they didn't feel threatened, they could afford to keep quiet because things were generally going their way.  The election of Obama forced their hands.

      2008 didn't improve much for the average, everyday person (white or black) regarding race.  There was no less racial discrimination, no less racial profiling, no less hatred.  In short, nobody should've been under any illusions that we were suddenly evolved like some post-racial sci-fi movie.  There was only the marker that the majority of the country could envision a day we got past all this crap.
