65. It's clearly an issue worth discussing
It's certainly true, in my opinion, that an Obama inauguration would be a proud and important day for our country, but it won't be the end of racism. Still, there is no doubt that conservatives will use the fact of his election as evidence of exactly that.

This doesn't mean, of course, that we shouldn't elect Obama--just that we need to prepare ourselves for how his election will change the conversation and how it might be used to undermine, rather than advance, progress towards true social justice.

I can understand taking issue with the headline, which doesn't really capture the nuance of the article itself, but dismissing the discussion is absurd.
