This So-Called Post-Post-Racial Life

About

Our “post-racial” moment lasted for, like, 22 or 23 minutes, on November 4th or 5th 2008 sometime after the major networks called the election for Barack Obama.

Actually, some claim that we have been a post-racial society for some longer period of time and, in fact, continue to exist in such an epoch. Still others claim that “post-racialism” is purely the stuff of mythology…or wishful thinking…or willful ignorance…or cunning malice. Or some combination of the above.

Myself, I’ll grant we may have had a post-racial moment. But I am calling it over.

So now we are in a state of post-post-racialism. What will that mean? What adventures await us in this new era of racial relations and racial perceptions?
