really have a problem with this racism First of all where does the African American label come from? Most blacks cannot trace any heritage to the African people (sold by their own families) who were brought here to be slaves. Why don't we have Irish-American? Scottish American? German-American etc. etc. If I go by my lineage, I would be Scottish, Irish,German,English American, WOW what a TITLE!!! If the blacks did not keep it alive, there would be no problem. I have noticed that no one says anything when we are classified as the old white people, when not a person is alive, I would imagine who knew their family had slaves or not. It is time to GET OVER IT. No one has control of the color of their skin.

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...
