This article states how we need more than a good president to erase centuries of violence. Although I agree with that statement, I also think having a good president maybe a nice start. In the article it states that America’s struggle is to become not post- racial, but post-rascist. Basically meaning we should seek not a world where the black race and the white race live in harmony, but a world in which the terms black and white have no real political meaning. This article relates to the other articles about Obama’s speeches where he believe there’s not a black America and white America and Latino America and Asian America; there’s the United States of America. The only difference is the writer of the article I have chosen believes that it takes more than a president to change the world. However, they all agree that terms black and white shouldn’t matter but we all should be co existing equally with one another.
According to the article “Post-Racial America? The Tangle of Race, Religion, and Citizenship” , post-racial means that american social and political life has become race-neutral and that, except for those on the fringes, Americans have rejected the overt practices of racial discrimination and hierarchy that have marked most of the nation’s history. Our nation has yet to become Post-Racial, and with all the racist or discrimination killings and cop killings thats been going on I don’t think America will be there any time soon. However, I hope that we can come up with some kind of solution to better the United States because all these killings are nothing but heart breaking and makes me believe the United States has no hope.
