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.

Is having a post-racial American Culture a desirable goal? What would it really mean to live in a color-blind American Culture?
