I BELIEVE...

that we will have achieved true racial equality in this country when the day comes where we can elect an African-American president without obsessing over it. Without patting ourselves on the back about how far we've come. Without interviewing people on the news 24/7 about how happy they are to have a President that "looks like me." When we can truly see PAST the color of someone's skin and focus on the person inside, the issues he supports, and the values he holds.

As Martin Luther King Jr. said, "I hope that one day a man will be judged not by the color of his skin but by the content of his character"

Excellent post, Allison!
