A New Day has Dawned.

People everywhere are saying that electing Barack Obama is evidence that racism is over in America, and they must be right because we are already feeling the love!

We can't believe how much America has turned around! Every week we'll bring you a new story of how our fair country has become more...fair.

Have you had similar experiences in this new racism-free world? How has your life changed? Share your stories with us, and we'll put them on the blog.

One Love (for real this time),

Telling People Apart

I totally hear you Su Yin. Along those lines, have you noticed that people seem to be able to tell each other apart? I haven’t been mistaken for the other black men at my office yet. Every time the three of us are in the break room at the same time, and one of our white colleagues comes in we look at ourselves wondering who will be called by whose name. We were placing bets on it for a while but so far, no one’s mixed us up at all. And even better, no one has come in and told us that we look just like the latest black movie start to be in a Hollywood movie. And, it seems they can tell those guys apart too. No more “I saw this movie with Denzel…no, maybe it was Taye…or was it Jamie…you know, one of those guys.” They actually call me, my colleagues, and all other black men by their names!
