Postracial America

OK, I agree with Frank Rich that the birther movement, the beer summit, etc., prove that America's not close to being postracial. The good news is that my daughter is the only person close to me whose narratives about friends entirely omit race as a descriptor. I don't know whether that's generational, personal, or a credit to her upbringing, but it's always something of a surprise.
