Inauguration of President-Elect Obama : White people, stay home.

I'm hoping that the above entry is meant to be funny, and witty (even though it's neither).

We have friends going (they're black, so apparently..it's ok)...which, given the historical nature of this election gives them a pass for insisting on being present for the swearing in of an American President.
Even though our friends are Canadian...and even though Obama has already stated that his first foreign visit will probably be to Ottawa.

One thing is for sure though, Obama's election has done nothing for the state of affairs where racism is concerned.
