Remember when some people said that Barack Obama’s election meant we had gone post-racial? It really hasn’t turned out that way.
In the last 20 months, we’ve heard the Attorney General of the United States say we’re a “nation of cowards” about race. We’ve seen a movement of people who still insist that Barack Obama wasn’t born in this country and therefore isn’t qualified to be president. We’ve seen white unemployment rates at their worst in almost three decades — and Latino and Black unemployment rates that blow the white rate away.
