Post-Racial America

Now that we have a bi-racial President, that nasty "racism" business is completely behind us, right? I mean, clearly there can't be any more problems now that we've had a small number of successful people of color in important public and business positions, right?

But man, remember how horrible things used to be? Like when people believed crazy things about how people of different races were better than others and that mixing the two would result in all sorts of horrible problems?

I mean, I remember a time when as many as 46% of Republicans in Mississippi thought all interracial marriages should be illegal. Those were dark times, the times Because that is indeed currently what 46% of Mississippi Republicans believe.

But don't worry; we certainly don't need pointless things like Affirmative Action, because we're past all of that racism stuff...
