I have never quite understood the conservative notion that somehow discussing race, or allowing for people to self-identify in ways that make them more culturally comfortable, perpetuates the racial divide. Forcing a veil of silence over the millions that feel disenfranchised is not a solution. If you don't think the conversation we are having about race in this country is constructive, then add substance to it. But don't simply deny that it should take place because you don't like what you hear.

Clearly that's not all you have failed to understand, witless1...

People are free to "self-identify" as they choose, but that doesn't mean they deserve any special protections or legal benefits. There is no constitutional basis for creating or granting special rights to homosexuals, and as such, the court had no authority to make any of the rulings which have benefited the homosexual movement, including Bowers v. Hardwick, Lawrence v. Texas and others.

There is nothing "constructive" about talking about race because it is a common belief that "only white people can be racist" while the ongoing, obscene racism of all other races is overlooked. As such, the "discussion" has become a racIST monologue about the "evils of white society" and the celebration of "minority rights."

BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) — In a story Aug. 19 about Justice Antonin Scalia's speech in Montana, The Associated Press reported erroneously that Scalia dissented in both Supreme Court decisions involving gay marriage and benefits for same-sex couples. Scalia dissented in the Defense of Marriage Act decision but voted with the majority in ruling the court had not standing in the California gay marriage case.
