Is this the best time to be focused on race?

With all the problems going on in the world today, is the biggest issue how President Obama deals with a cop who arrested his friend? By now we've come to realize that Obama is only human and subject to the same faults we have to deal with on a daily basis. The only problem is, he has "Entertainment Tonight" cameras jammed down his throat every second of the day.

We can't allow a stupid story like, a professor breaking into his own house, to divert anyone's attention, especially the President's. It was bad enough that everyone got carried away with Michael Jackson, but this has gone too far.

These distractions reveal the way we're all trying to pretend that the world isn't the way it actually is. We want to believe that we live in the 80's and 90's where we can discuss/argue race, that's not a luxury we can afford now. Put it aside and let's focus on the problems that face all of us and in the process, race won't be an issue. Isn't that what we all want? Oh it isn't? Well... Okay then.
