Yes, because there's no way to reach 62% of a demographic without racism in play.
I don't necessarily subscribe to the racism argument either way. But you guys going full retard the other direction doesn't make it any better. Republicans usually consider themselves lucky (nationally) to get more than 10 or 12 points among blacks. I'm sure Obama's race drew out some more black people that didn't previously vote, but overall this isn't really that big of a thing.
Well, I guess maybe the split itself is a big deal (and a problem), but mostly it's old news.
