The South Carolina primary way have actually been bad for Obama in this respect. Better for him for it to have been on Super Tuesday so the press wouldn't be talking about racial issues 24/7 for a week.

I also think that Obama would be doing better with white voters if he weren't running against a quasi-incumbent. For example the polls show him losing big in MA which we can be pretty sure is not mostly racial voting since 55% of MA voters voted for a black guy for Gov. in 2006 in the three way race! That followed a come from behind win for Patrick in a contested Democratic primary against two white candidates.
