The article "Still Not Colorblind" by Aaron S. offers level-headed perspective amidst all the excitement surrounding President Obama's election. He is right in that America, if we do not wish to go back on our own ideals, should be paying attention to whether or not Obama is doing a good job as our president, not if he is doing a good job as our first black president. If we truly hope to end racism in America, we should not be distinguishing people by their races. We should try to make the race of a person irrelavent; people should be recognized for who they are, not what they look like.

The truth is that at some point, everyone's going to hurt you. You just have to decide who's worth the pain.

Some say having something to lose is what makes you vulnerable. I believe that having something to lose only makes you stronger.
