I enjoyed this week’s lectures and reading. they were quite interesting to me with politics going on in society. In this week’s reading, specifically “Post -Racial America, many believe that once Barrack Obama was in office as the first African American President, the problem of racism would go away. I agree that, in society, there is less racism problems going on than before but it didn’t just go away because Obama was in office. Yes, I believe America has come a long way about racism but it was an constant challenge and fight to change and better society about racism and discrimination in the country. I believe that Obama is a great President and has, exceptionally, lived up to the great standards. But many people thought just because there was a president of color in office, racism would completely vanish, and that is not the case, not then and not now. People need to know that we, as a whole, country, and society, need to fight against racism everyday. We all need to be a solution to the problem and not just depend on a president just because of their skin color. That doesn’t change anything. We, as a society, can change things by our constant actions.
