    Arizona Governor Signs Contraversial Immigration Bill Into Law

    Let’s face it.

    We totally do not live in a post-racial world. And as a black person, I can already hear the dissent to this post…the yelps about how bringing these “faux-racial issues”  up in conversation leads to some type of racial exasperation in society. Basically, mentioning white, black or race in conversation just creates a problem.

    It’s nice to think that racial tension was a thing of our grandparents’ past and that the same issues they dealt with (ahem…slavery and segregation) count as the only racist shit of America’s past.

    And the truth…and the honest to God truth…is that race still permeates our society…BIG TIME.

    But there will be those who will try to say that racism doesn’t exist. Enter exaggerated eye roll. But that’s probably…

    Because our president is black…obvi…
