Gotta love our polls on the “racial divide,” interracial marriages, and interracial relations, huh?

They’re interesting if nothing else, and of course there are politicians (and those seeking political office) who rely heavily on them (usually because they can’t rely on intuition, in my humble estimation).

But here is another interesting (nonetheless) little ditty on interracial dating and “racial progress” (whatever that vague term means) since the death of MLK.

“Racial progress” is of course quite a relative term, when you think about just what those two words combined mean. They’re almost an oxymoronic term to many; that “progress” and “racial” could go together any more than “military intelligence.”

Since Obama has taken office as President, have race relations across America changed? Have job prospects gotten any better or worse since he took the oath of office? If you have an informed opinion, I’d love to hear it, especially if you can back it up.
