Parola Perspective: Congrats Meghan and Harry: By Brooks Parola, formerly of Flint.

It's progress, and it's important progress. Like Obama's presidency, it's always important to see nations who have long histories of racial discrimination, take a step like this.
Now hopefully we've learned our lesson, and won't be naive enough to, like we did with Obama's presidency, suggest that we've moved into a "post racial" world. Because boy have we been proven wrong!
But we can't dismiss this wedding either. We must recognize the progress it represents. I've been a proud mutt my entire life, and while I'm not naive enough to think that we can ever wipe the scourge of racism completely from the face of the earth, I've always believed that the more interracial, interethnic offspring the world creates, the closer we get to that ultimate goal.
So, congrats Meghan and Harry, and thank you for making the world, a closer, civil, and loving place.
