What does the United States' first Black president indicate for American racial politics? Is Obama the threshold for a post-racial society?
In brief, no, he is not. Having a Black leader of the free world possesses promising implications for representation in American society--it proves that a majority of voters can be confident in a man to do a job regardless of his race, so long as he fits a certain mold. This was unthinkable as early as two decades ago. Nevertheless, Obama is fulfilling a social role with a deeply entrenched social script, one crafted by a predominantly White society over the passage of two and a half centuries. While this is a laudable individual achievement that can serve as an impetus for aspiring Black youth, it does not mean that he serves as the beacon for a post-racial era. The policies and ideologies put in place that impeded Black citizens from such an office for this long still take hold everyday. Obama, given the critical lens of his personal experience, has made efforts to ameliorate but not subvert these barriers (contracting the crack to cocaine sentencing disparity, pardoning non-violent offenders and defunding federal private prisons). Obama represents a step forward, but he would probably not agree to emblematizing a relenting in our nation's civil rights struggle.
