Post Racial America: Is Obama a Symbol of the New American Dilemma?

The election of President Barack Obama has called into question many people's view of the salience of race in US American Culture. Has America's racial destiny been fulfilled with the election of the nation's first black president? Are debates about race still relevant or should we view race in a new, transcendent way? Is having a post-racial American Culture a desirable goal? What would it really mean to live in a color-blind American Culture?
