Wait for it...

The Republicans name Michael Steele chair of the party. He is a rare creature, a black Republican. Now we will find out if the election of Obama means we are post-racial.

I guarantee you a year ago this man would be labeled an "Uncle Tom", an inauthentic American black and disgrace to African-Americans. The smart money says all of those epithets will still be used, but we can hope that he will be treated better. Read the opinion columns tomorrow and find out.
