cynique: don't be so cynical...i never said things haven't gotten better, only that we have lots of problems, and that now that the elephant as slightly moved to the side, we can see others...
On another note, at the end of the day, we are just folk...and this means that an increase in inter-racial was inevitable...interestingly, I wonder if folk will identify their themselves by their culture or "color." It doesn't seem strange that this country may have many phenotypically white children from phenotypically black parents...or light skinned folk, but their culture will be african american and politics....interesting, no?
look at Obama...biracial kenyan brother married to an african american sista...met at harvard....consider adam clayton powell sr. and of course ACP Jr....there will be more of these folk in the future...that people will be identified by both color and culture...also, throughout many of the inner cities, the african population is increasing and they are beginning to have a continental identity rather than ethnic/religious...so what will be their political position?...will they intermarry w/african americans(Obama)...will we reject them as "foreigners," will they introduce another form of black politics, will they be used against us?
