I guess Mr. Goldberg has never read the comments from conservative townhall members. A lot of them bring us race when talking about the ills of the USA.

Oh yea the tremendous impact of TH commenters. ...... Umm not really. MSNBC is a 24 hour a day/ 7 days a week /365 days a year racism factory, injecting race into every argument they can. The fact is their staff are liilly white, live in rich upscale neighborhoods, send their children to private schools, have armed guard protection, wouldnt be seen in a black neighborhood without a camera crew, wouldnt live in the black neighborhoods, and spout off the most about the fact blacks couldnt survive without their interventions on their behalf. They believe the black family is not needed, that black attitudes about faith and culture (which are quite conservative) are irrelevant and have turned MLK's belief about colorblindness and equal ...

...opportunity into government dependence and perpetual poverty and call themselves the protectors of these people. They treat blacks as small children, needing a nanny or guardian at all times because the black man or woman is incapable of independent thought or action. If and when a black person expresses a different view they are rapidly labeled toms and turncoats and castigated personally while never discussing the merits of their arguments. So I would say to you that racism is alive and well and its in the mouths of those on the left who speak to it and hold to it BECAUSE it gives them power and influence and money to be made on the race hustling, race card circuit of American politics.

Only when the article is about race.

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...
