I am sure the black community is pleased that she has an opinion.

Liberalism is a mental illness.

Paltrow notices sowmthing that deeply upsets white racists and some racially biased blacks as well---that younger people are coming more and more to see each other as HUMAN BEINGS. They are more and more able to appreciate the BEAUTY in human diversity.
But I think they need also see the importance of recognizingh and breaking down INSTITUTIONALIZED inequaiity still existing along racial lines.

Nonetheless, there is progress. Look at the OWS Movmeent that is sweeping America and the world: It is the color of the rainbow.

Because Obama is MORE intelligent than those of the Republican opposition. More civilized and more rational. Flawed, but better than the alternative.
If you and I were both running for the Presidency, the more intelligent part of the citizenry would be voting for me just as they vote for Obama. At the very least they'd have to acknowledge that I'm preferable to the alternative.

That's so stupid. You might as well say, "White President" because he's half white. He's Mulatto. So Mulatto President.

I normally do not give much credence to the musings of celebrities as most of what they say is just to garner good publicity to further their careers.

However, I must admit that in this case, Paltrow makes some salient points.

Each new generation knows more racial diversity, tolerance and acceptance then the one before it.

Each new generation sees less racial hatred and tolerates less racism then it predecessor.

This is why we don't see or hear many racists spewing their hate in the general public.

This is why vulgar, disgusting racists, like the ones posting here, are being forced further and further underground.

Most decent folks of all races will not tolerate these vile miscreants expressing their racist garbage openly, so they must meet in secret and post their crap anonymously on internet forum chat sites like this one.

And these are good things.
