An utterly imaginary and fictional term, much like "pixie-dust" because there is no such thing.

The idea of a post-racial America is comforting to many, yet that does not make the idea reality.

Maybe one day America will truly be post-racial but the election of an African-American president does not mean the nation as a whole has moved beyond all racial issues and racist points of view.

Maybe election of a Black president (defined as one descended from American slave ancestry) would move us even closer to post-racial.

Commonly confused to mean "a society one generation removed from an era of prevalent racism", it is in fact a reference to the newly developed ability of racists to "post" their perennial screeds on the Internet through the use of blogs and message boards.
It is no surprise that since the election, nut jobs have come out of the wood work on to their computers to post-racial rants against Obama.
