Racism in the United States

With the inauguration coming up, I've been thinking about something- Racism. You see, I understand that electing the first black president of this country is an historic moment. Ok. It's been said. Must it be said over and over? Why do we still have racism in this country? We still have racism because of the great emphasis on things like "America's first black president" keep being tossed around. He's just a man. He's just the new president. He will be inaugurated like all of the presidents before him. If we stop emphasizing the differences, only then can we actually have a country that looks beyond the color of one's skin. Think about it.

I'd like to say an Amen to that also. Like the previous comment, although I am black, I did not vote for him. Everyone is in for a rude awakening when they realize that he is just a man and now our savior.

I meant to say not our savior.

Let me add my agreement to the first two comments. I am also black but I hope my co-workers judge me as a person and not a black worker. We can only say the country has taken a true step forward when Obama is judged as a president and not as a black president.
