CBS: Daniel Dae Kim speaks about a post-racial society and those who inspired him

posted by Randall

Daniel Dae KimCBS News continued its series of interviews with major figures in the arts, business and politics by talking to Daniel Dae Kim of Lost and Hawaii Five-0 fame about his experiences with the civil rights movement.

Kim disagrees with those who maintain Americans live in a post racial society.

“To those people, I will only say, “Walk a mile in a minority’s shoes, and you will see that we do not live in a post-racial society.”

Kim says the good news is that we are headed in the right direction. ” The diversity that we have now is probably the most we have had in the history of our country, and what is considered America today is probably more inclusive — no, not “probably,” I would definitely say it’s more inclusive — than at any time in our history.”

You can listen to Kim’s thoughts on a post racial society in the clip below and read about some of those in the civil rights movement who inspired him on CBS News.
