Honey-Colored Nation

I heard two great phrases this week that mark the generational change America is undergoing as the Race Question turns into the thousand ways of living our national ethnicity.

Jon Henke, of the libertarian QandO Blog, reprinted his post of 2006: "Martin Luther King: The Last Founding Father."

And in some other blog, which I can not now find, someone described today's America, Obama's America, Gen-X America: we are a "honey-colored nation."

Sadly, the rest of the piece is ageist, in that she can't imagine Obama being ready for prime time.

You "Centrist" are sure obsessed with race and color. I predict Obama will get the sizeable "white guilt" vote.

Thank God we are becoming a honey-colored nation. I hope that my generation (I'm 37) will completly realize this in my lifetime
