Liberal Obsession With Race is Growing Old

Wrong. There is too much money to be made hating whitey. Jackson, Sharpton, West, Wright ey al have become multi multi millionaires playing the "I-am-an-opressed-black-man" game. While I generally agree with Jonah, he fell into the guilty white man trap of saying that there are racists in the GOP and only some in the Dem Party. Racism is not a problem in this country and the reason for the unequal reslults between blacks and whites are self inflicted.

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...
