The “Post-Racial” Thing

Black says: Yesterday I did a quick post asking what exactly does “Post-Racial” really mean as it applies to America. This is a term that has been kicked around since Obama won and to me sounds very vague.

Today, I happened to come across a Youtube video featuring Tavis Smilely who briefly dealt with this issue.

“…Obama’s election is not the fulfillment of Dr. King’s dream. It is another down payment on the dream.”

Then he goes on to quote Cornell West: “America, with Obama’s election is now less racist.”

I don’t like the the guilt game he is playing here because it never ends. In other words, in the age where every fart, sneeze and hiccup from White folks can be construed as form of racism, WHO exactly has the ability to declare that all debts have been paid in full? Jesse? Al? NAACP? CBC? More HERE
