Princeton Students Say “Nooooooooo We’re Not Post-Racial”

By Jorge Rivas May 05, 2009

I’ve heard lots of opinions from both sides of the "post-racial" argument, but recently I realized that I haven’t really heard from young people. The video above is a group of Black students from Princeton discussing race, racism and Michelle Obama’s thesis. The first minute of this video is really good, a young woman eloquently steals the show right at the :38 second mark when she takes the discussion beyond interpersonal racism, which is a lot deeper than many people take this argument.
