Liberal Obsession With Race is Growing Old

Every governor that ever stood in a school doorway to block entry of a black child, was a Democrat. Every police cheif who turned loose dogs and fire hoses on Freedom Marchers, was a Democrat. U.S. Senator, Al Gore Sr, yes that one, filibustered to try to stop the Civil Rights Act of 1964, was a Democrat, as were all his Democrat colleagues who filibustered with him. No wonder Democrats feel guilty about the way balcks have been treated in this country as they were the ones doing it to them. Safe bet that most slave-owners were also Democrats. An interesting juxtaposition, wouldn't you say.

When will liberals stop living in the past? Specifically, when will they accept that they aren't all that stands between a wonderful, tolerant America and Jim Crow?

I was in the room when, during the Democratic convention, civil rights hero John Lewis suggested that Republicans wanted to "go back" to the days when black men like him could be beaten in the street by the enforcers of Jim Crow. I thought it an outrageous and disgusting bit of demagoguery. The audience of Democratic delegates cheered in a riot of self-congratulation.

It's bizarre. I spend most of my time talking...
