(July 11, 2009) Luis Fraga, former Stanford political science professor and noted expert on Latino and racial politics, argues that Barack Obama's electoral victory and recent nomination of Sonia Sotomayor to the U.S. Supreme Court mark a dramatic shift in the country's racial thinking and are indicative of long-term trends. Politicians, now more than ever, are needing to reach across racial divides in order to win votes, a sea-change that is opening up new opportunities for minorities like Obama and Sotomayor to rise to the top.
