Race and Politics

Posted on November 6, 2008. Filed under: Uncategorized |

As history has been made, and so much of it is focused on the election of a black man into office, it is important to understand and realize that racism is not gone, it is in fact, still very strong and present.  As we are experiencing the new forms of racism on a daily life, mainly institutionalized racism and not traditional racism (blatant), it is important for all of us to recognize its existence, and to continue to forge through the social nuances that plague our societal structure of complancency.  Yes, history has been made, but we’ve got much further to go.  Please stay tuned for a more in depth analysis of traditional vs. modern forms of racism.

This is important Isaac. I’ve heard in a number of places, “There are no excuses anymore.” This has been done by both African-Americans and Caucasian writers. People are too eager to say, “Obama has been elected, we can put a check mark on the to-do list and move one to poverty or other issues now that racism is dead.”
