While many of us are still flying high, allowing the fact that we just elected our first black president to sink in…
Others seem hell-bent on reminding us that such an historic moment comes with its share of challenges.
Simply put, there are still plenty of jackasses out there.
From Massechussetts we hear the story of a predominantly black church, still under construction, being burnt to the ground mere hours after Barack Obama became our president elect.
If this story conjures up images from 45 years ago, it should.
We have made enormous progress in this country, but we cannot allow Tuesday night’s victory to inflict amnesia upon us, causing us to forget the very real racial challenges we still face in this great- albeit divided- nation.
