I only see...

This enlightening article (one I meant to post quite some time ago) by Will Okun is ever the more revealing for its comments section. For it is in the comments that one gets to see one of those very rare instances when Americans openly and honestly address and confront the real issues that white America has in dealing with race and "the other." And that is quite the welcomed sigh of relief from the now customarily inane and camera friendly, "I just don't see race."

Sure, we've managed to elect an African American to the White House since this article was written, but the major question remains- just how comfortable are we with them considerably closer?
