30. I'm actually happy he has to do it
I think Obama really is a transformative leader--and I think part of that transformative quality is the way he can make us rethink discourses of race. We have been having the same conversations about race since the late 60s now; it is time for a new discourse and a way of destabilizing the entrenched, and always too-available, positions.
