Thank you Steve. The only reason I have read through all of these offensive comments was to find if there might be a voice of logic and reason among them. I won't even make a direct comment to the article myself because of the masochistic absurdity of trying to reason with this throng of the deluded blinded by their knee jerk bigotry and racism.
Straw man arguments run rampant through their minds and out of their sad and bitter mouths. For example:
You mention that Derrick Bell was "trying to enforce integration laws in the deep South, at considerable personal risk, while conservative heroes Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan opposed major civil rights legislation."
