Perspectives on Race

A Discussion about Events Concerning Race

Chris Matthews

While I personally did not watch the State of the Union, and now regret, I did come across an article in which Chris Matthews states that “I forgot he was black tonight for an hour…” This is precisely what we are talking about in class. It seems that in order for us to see and accept someone as evil they have to conform to society. It is a shame that we cannot recognize someone in our society for who they are or their background. Plus it is a shame that in order for a broadcaster to gain rating or publicity he has to say something so obnoxiously racist. I think that it is a mistake that Matthews will soon realize, it should not matter what color skin a president has, but you should not make light of the differences either.
