Already better with Obama part 2

I was thinking how much race relations improved during the campaign alone. While I was working on the campaign, there was an extraordinary mix of blacks, whites, and hispanics all working together. But none of the people working in the campaign really noticed that, which is exactly the point!

Then on the final weekend, when we moved to Mi Casa Su Casa restaurant, one of the regulars of the restaurant, an elderly black man, talked about how astonished he was to see all those white folks working to elect a black president. He finished his eggs and then asked us how he could help. Ezra Klein posted a set of pictures which helped capture the mood of black and white people working together.
