Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

The old divide

Looking back at my previous comments on race, it is clear that America is still a bitterly divided nation. If at least 60% of whites are choosing one party and over 70% of non-whites are electing for the other, then notions of a black president ushering in a post-racial politics remain ludicrous. Add to that the crass Republican attempts at state level to suppress voter turnout by requiring unnecessary forms of ID (which will disproportionately affect minority voters), and the echoes of Jim Crow and the segregationist era of politics appear less distant.
