Who would have believed that in this day and age, --50 years after civil rights legislation, 6 years into a black presidency, 150 years after the Civil War-- there are still Americans so full of hate.
Sad. Let's stop striving for "post-racial" and admit we see race. And once we admit that, maybe we can try to see the privileges and depredations. And once we see those, perhaps we can do something to bring about true equality.
