Liberal Obsession With Race is Growing Old

The denial of inconvenient reality as become the mark , indeed the prerequisite , of being a modern American liberal. Leftist mythology predominates at every institutional level in our society. Good thing for me that I "married into" the African-American community in 1978 and am well acquainted with the reality that things have changed for the better, vastly so, out here on the ground where it matters most. A man with an arguement is never at the mercy of a man with an experience.

Man it's early...I meant to say that a man with an experience is never at the mercy of a man with an arguement. 1000 pardons.

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...
