"When whites -- especially today's younger generation -- proudly support Obama for his post-racialism, they unwittingly embrace race as their primary motivation. They think and act racially, not post-racially. The point is that a post-racial society ... seduces whites with a vision of the racial innocence precisely to coerce them into acting out of a racial motivation. A real post-racialist ... would not care about displaying or documenting his racial innocence. Such a person would evaluate Obama politically rather than culturally."Read about it here.
Exactly -- that's why I have long held that the Republicans, not the Democrats, are the post-racial party. Democrats still see politics through the prism of race, and are willing to vote for a man not because of the content of his character [about which they know essentially nothing] but because of the color of his skin -- and then they declare that such bigotry marks them as enlightened people.
