Do the Post-Racial Thing

'Do The Right Thing' still asks burning questions -
"'White people still ask me why Mookie threw the can through the window,' Lee said in an interview. 'Twenty years later, they're still asking me that.'

'No black person ever, in 20 years, no person of color has ever asked me why.'"
I guess to get to a post-racial America we'd need folks of all colors to both have the compassion to understand why and not have the life experience that makes it so they don't even have to ask. We are not there yet.
