It's not the end of racism, any more that electing and re-electing Barack Obama was the end of racism.

More than halfway through a panel discussion before Republican rainmakers in Aspen, Texas Gov. Rick Perry, while extolling his own foreign policy credentials, referred to himself “as the president.” Recognizing his mistake, he repeated it, this time with a head-bobbing cackle straight out of former President George W.

Amazon.com won another battle in its e-commerce war against Mainstreet retailers last month. South Carolina gave the online giant a $5 million building site, a property tax break and a series of other tax credits and exemptions worth tens of millions in exchange for the jobs Amazon promised to bring in setting up a distribution center there.
