As we enter the weekend in which we celebrate the civil rights movement and Martin Luther King, Jr. it is rather shocking and sad that we still haven't come farther than we are. Even though the Obamas are now at the top they are still constantly subject to racial stereotyping, as are minorities in general. And we even still have signs being put up that claim "white only" and the person who did it thinks it was reasonable. It's even worse that the sign is from Selma, Alabama and was made in 1931.
This just continues to show that Obama becoming president did not represent the beginning of a post-racial America, but instead was simply another step in that direction and we still have a long way to go. The promised land is out there, but we still have a long way to go.
