All I've got to say to that article is that now we have made progress enough in American culture that racism is not 100% prohibitive 100% of the time for the most extraordinarily talented individuals in all of human history to be recognized and achieve what they have worked extremely hard for. How impatient and naive we are to think that there will ever be an end to racism? And the most critical issue here in my mind is that we don't get soft and lazy on our politics and really seeing things for what they are now that Obama is in office. Believe me, even I have been called the n-word, which I find completely mystifying, not to mention general ignorant slurs that are actually accurate to my racial category.
