"The phrase "great white hope" is frequently tied to racist attitudes permeating the United States when heavyweight boxing champion Jack Johnson fought in the early 1900s.

I mean you had a Freudian slip saying that you want to see some white candidate come from the midst and hopefully careen into the political scene taking down Barack Obama in the 2012 Presidential Election.
