    I always laugh bitterly when I think of the way people were saying “we now live in a post-racial world” after Obama was elected President in 2008.

    Great column, Michael!

    And by the way, I remember that LOIS LANE story. And I also remember feeling oddly insulted when I read it, even though I was–and am–a nice Jewish WHITE girl somewhere in the prepubescent stage of life. Don’t really know why–I think I realized dimly that it was a sham; but it was the same type of feeling I would get whenever I saw a hokey “imitation of being Jewish” on a television show, y’know the type, a “very special episode” of whatever.

    Although the Dick Van Dyke show did a great episode in which Buddy was secretly going for bar mitzvah lessons and everybody thought he was having an affair. But that was portrayed very realistically, and I think it was because Morey Amsterdam was Jewish.
