Fort Greener believes in Obama, but still thinks racism is alive
Today's NYT article on blacks savoring Obama's victory in Iowa quotes the manager of Carol's Daughter as saying:
“Right now, it’s too good to be true, and I think most of us don’t want to get our hopes up too high,” said Eboni Anthony, 28, manager of Carol’s Daughter, which sells scented candles, soaps and moisturizers across the street from Fort Greene Park in Brooklyn. “I think racism is as alive as it was 30 years ago.
“I would love to believe in a fairy tale of having a black president. But I don’t believe the whole United States would agree to it.”
