Racism in America

“What racism?” people cry, “Didn’t we elect a black guy for president?” (Implying: “Doesn’t that prove that racism is over in America?”).

A few points:

First, on November 4, 2008, the United States did what only one other country that I know of ever has ever done — elect a president from a minority race in a country with a different majority race. (Peru is the only other country I can think of to have done that) That a still predominantly white U.S. would elect a black man as head of state was stunning to many. That historic accomplishment is a sign of great progress and a hope of better things to come for racial equality and justice in the United States.
