The Obama campaign has forced the country to once again look at ourselves through the prism of race relations. As I read stories and editorials and also listen to people on radio and TV, I cant help but wonder if the idea of President Barack Obama would put the whole issue to rest. If an African-American can ascend to the highest office in the land then does it make the discussion unnecessary? Probably not, but what do you think?
