Commentary: A funny thing happened on the way to a post-racial America

McClatchy: "Whoever came up with the insipid term 'post-racial' ought to be forced to sit down and read aloud the vile commentary that pours into any newsroom after it publishes or airs a story on race. That would quickly cure the urge to insist we've finally reached that harmonious other side of the rainbow.

We certainly saw no such evidence in recent days, even in the actions of Barack Obama's White House, which is supposed to be living proof that Americans are 'over' race. Administration officials acted as discreditably as the nation's most storied civil rights organization, the NAACP, in its lame-brained, cowardly response to the latest racial provocation from the right."
