Obama, Ferraro, Wright: ‘Postracial’ Meets Racism

I read a very good article in The Nation this week, and I thought I’d link to it here. (This is a bit late, but I’m always a few weeks or months behind, behind when reading The Nation.)

My favourite quote, in reference to the Rev. Wright “scandal”:

For while Wright’s sermons clearly shocked many whites, to many blacks his sentiments were as banal an addition to the dinner table as hot sauce.
Andrea’s favourite quote: “White is the new black.”
