However, I will offer one question to this: do you view Obama as an “African-American” president?
Yes, I know he is and it’s a historic day, but (to me at least) he just seems like the President. And maybe that’s the most enduring legacy of MLK’s work…that race really isn’t an issue anymore.
Sure, there are still pockets of ignorance here and there, but for the most part that crowd is dying out in favor of a generation that actually does look at the content of somebody’s character instead of the color of their skin.
