Ebony & Ivy: Total DisharmonyEdit

--by Lionel Higgins Winchester Independent

We live in a post-racial society. We elected our first black president twice, so racism is a thing of the past. America was built on the premise that all men were created equal. What are these assertions have in common? First, they're bullshit. Second, they project naive optimism about the existence of a level playing field in our country. Third, they belittle and seek to erase from history the traumatic experiences of the oppressed. Bold statements? Indeed.
