After reading “Still Not Colorblind” by Aaron S, I was relieved to find out that someone else feels the same way as me. In Aaron’s article, he discussed the media’s portrayal of the significance of race in the 2008 Presidential Election. Aaron believed that by considering President Obama’s victory as a victory for African-Americans, the media is only making racism a bigger problem in our society. I couldn't agree more. If America is ever going to bypass racism, we shouldn't be considering race in our day-to-day lives.

I believe that the United States of America is the greatest country in the history of the world. One of the things that makes America so great is our ability to move on from past mistakes. We realized that slavery was wrong, so we abolished it. We realized that segregation was wrong, so we put an end to it. We've come so far, but if we don’t stop looking at people differently because of their race, we’ll never get to experience true equality.
