But Isn't It A Shame...

I'm proud we finally have a non-white President, but isn't it a shame that we still have to even think about things like race, and that such things aren't simply normal and not needing of comment or celebration?

The people most obsessed with race are liberals. It keeps a lot of people employed: lawyers, "diversity" managers; bi-lingual program instructors, etc.

Actually Obama is only 50% non-white. As a biracial person myself, I find people always trying to fit me into some box really insulting. I am just as much my Arawk grandmother's granddaughter, as my white grandmother's. Why should I be forced to choose between my parentage from different groups. I value them all equally and am proud to be their decesent.

This was a first step... It'll be the way you describe a few presidents Later I hope...

I didn't hear it, but it wouldn't surprise me.

Sadly, race is still an issue for many people.<br />

Didn´t one of those political commentators say : I forgot Obama was black for an hour (?)<br />

He may have explained this later, but it really sounds like a very stupid comment.

True -- and that's not mentioning other prejudices, such as religion and gender
