The Flip Side: Thoughts on Post-racial America

So normally we here at The Write Addiction take time to polish ideas and share them with you to see how you weigh in. However, since this series is all about social challenges and causes we get up for, I’m inviting all of our viewers to take an active role in this post.  I want to know how this editorial comic from The Boston Globe makes you feel.  Couple of ground rules.  1) Be brutally honest in your reaction to the piece; 2) Do NOT attack anyone’s opinion or comments on this entry; 3) Do engage in thoughtful dialog and….GO!

Not everything in life, or everyone in life, can be placed into categories. We are all wrong sometimes, and we are all right sometimes. We’re human. We go through stages. We all do this regardless of race, sex, social norms, etc…
