In a post President Barrack Obama election there is a belief that race has become a quite social exercise. Our discussion is not quite or over. Race is a loud social enigma that we will discuss. Many people in the U.S. and around the world have seen the election of President Barack Obama as a sign that racism in America is a thing of the past.
