I was a child of the 80s. There was lots of Michael Jackson, Prince, and Tina Turner. Music videos sparkled with lots of glitter. I had a great childhood. There was no struggle or strife, no real racial ah-ha moment. I look back believing that my life was never touched by racism or anything socially ugly. Still having tremendous faith in the human condition, I was naive and happy. Today's racism is not so obvious, but does that make it any better? People seen to think that just because the president is black that the struggle is over. They may not say that, but more or less behave as though it is. It's getting better. Though getting better means that congress is in eternal gridlock. Getting better means the Tea Party Republicans and other right wing groups have more clout than ever. We all know Obama was the first black president, but did we also know he'd be the first president to be called a liar at his State of the Union address? I truly believe there are bad actors in our very government that don't want him to succeed.
