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),

It’s been so great to be a police officer since racism has ended. It makes my job so much easier! I have to admit, that it was hard to keep so much in my head at once. I mean, we didn’t just have to remember the laws, our code of conduct, how to get around the city and use our sirens and weapons, but we also had to remember all this stuff about black people being drug addicts, brown-skinned people with head things being spies and consipirtors, brown-skinned people standing on corners being illegal, and that everyone with an accent was a terrorist. That’s just the half of it. Really, it was too much. We got confused, we really did. So we simplified it to the idea that brown-skinned people across the board were inherently more violent and dangerous than everyone else. So shoot them. Really, we have a lot to think about so we had to make something simple to remember.

That seemed to work out okay for the most part, very few officers lost their jobs with that policy, so we were cool with it. But now we know that’s not true. You’d think this would shatter our realities, but it actually makes our jobs even easier! Now we just treat everyone as a citizen who deserves equal respect and investigation if the situation merits it. We actually find out things like facts and details and then act on those. I mean, it makes sense when you think about it, no matter how much of a criminal one person is the probably aren’t more dangerous than three of us carrying guns, clubs and tazers, right?
