1. WE ARE NOT POST-RACIAL JUST BECAUSE WE ELECTED A BLACK PRESIDENT. We took a lovely step in that direction, but come on! The black pundits on MSNBC said things like, "I can now tell my child they can be anything and it's true." And that's the truth. But what about half of Harlem? Can they say the same thing? Admittedly, we might be moving toward a pure class bias, but even that is so tainted by the racial history in our country.
2. And speaking of Oprah, I loved seeing her standing in the crowd last night. Not so much because of what it said about her, but because of what it says about how Obama inspires people.
