Many argue the emergence of an African American candidate has fueled the debate regarding where race and politics fit in America. The increased expectations that America would transcend race and that racial attitude would undergo a fundamental change, despite this expectation it has not.
These events have only reinforced that race continues to define who we are as Americans and perpetuate the fact that we are not living in a post racial society in the age of Obama.
Despite this idea of a post racial society, race and racism continue to be alive and well in America and the fact that we are not living in a post racial era continues to be a major disappointment in our country.
As America slowly but surely confronts the issue of race, it becomes quite clear that race still Summary post racial america in America. As we entered the 21st-century silent and not overt segregation exists in our school systems, employment, poverty, healthcare, prison system, immigrant communities, and other sectors of societies.
Integration of schools, hotels, workforce, parks, public places and other avenues of society has left a blind eye to many of hidden racial disparities that are prevalent in American society.

Thus, here lies the problem of why post racial America has been lost in translation and why race still matters. Race relations have taken away the best of who we are as Americans and what we can become as a society.
The election of our first African American president has demonstrated our great strides towards a racial harmonious society, where we respect all the contributions to our great country.
Race and race relations continue to define many of our public policies and play an important role in every sector of society whether we admit it or not. We should be very proud of our accomplishments, our strides towards a post racial society, our civil rights gains; but it is also important that we do not become complacent with this progress.
