Life In Post-Racial America

Yesterday’s Detroit Free Press gave prominent space to this reader's letter to the editor about the nomination of Judge Sonia Sotomayor:

American Hispanics as a people can finally put our invisible suitcase down for a time and feel that as Latino natives in this nation we finally belong for today ("Obama introduces Supreme Court pick," May 26). We Latinos have given our lives in every war for America, but America has never welcomed us as a people. We are treated like renters in this racist nation.

Finally, we would have a voice in the American white-and-black-only nation and justice system.

God Bless President Barack Obama for his courage in nominating Judge Sonia Sotomayor.

I hate to sound like a cliche, but -- if this is such a "racist nation," why do you want to live here?

P.S. Great site!
