Interesting piece here. I agree that racism is directly correlated to the mix of people in your immediate area.

Something Nate left out, however, is the other side of the coin. His focus was intently on white racism, white voting patterns. Sure, some people voted against Obama because of his African roots. Other people, however, voted FOR Obama because of his genetic makeup or because their race is the same as Obama's.

While rural areas contain racist people, homogeneous areas filled with blacks and latino's are also racist towards different people. Racism or distaste of blacks by Latino's is well documented. Detroit's black ghetto's are hardly welcoming, if not physically dangerous to non-blacks.

There is plenty of racism to go around. Both sides of the coin have different complaints or myths, but there are 2-sides to the coin.
