The Racial Divide

Senator Webb has written a remarkable article about race in America. In "Diversity and the Myth of White Privilege" we actually hear whispers here of the post-racial society so many hoped for after the election in 2008.  Where President Obama's famous race relations speech was praised by the media, its most memorable lines were about his grandmother as "a typical white person" and about his reverend as believing white racisim is endemic in America,  Senator Webb's article holds far more hope for America and calls for the end of "government-directed diversity programs."

That, is a post-racial thought.
