Liberal Obsession With Race is Growing Old

"When will liberals stop living in the past?" Never. It's not astonishing that they're stuck in the Jim Crow period (a largely Democratic innovation). They're still rehashing Alger Hiss, Joe McCarthy, Sacco and Vanzetti, the Civil War, the Crusades. . . They demand a "living" Constitution, one continually updated to accord with current fads and prejudices; but in nearly every other field of thought and discourse, they're stuck in a bygone era.

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...
