Thanks for the article Katz. It's GOOD to know that somebody outside of the main "minority" circle can see that much has changed but much has not. There are some events, actions and proclamations in this country that imply we are post-racial, but there are also colossal events and actions that prove we are far from being post-racial. Trayvon Martin was one of a number of key indicators of this. The Romney campain/circus was another. Perhaps that term is some sort of psychological trick to get people to believe it before it's actually happening so that it would happen? I don't know, but that "post-racial" term needs to be laid to rest until the hearts of people are truly void of a supremacist perspective. Many (not just in the U.S. but globally) truly believe in their hearts that "white is right", and that there is a racial ranking or protocol. There IS a racial ranking - but only because much of the world has believed that lie for so long and cooperated with it. It's a mind-set that needs to be demolished...by any means necessary.
