Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Post Racial America

President Obama came forward to make some thoughtful remarks on Trayvon Martin.

The right wing Wurlitzer immediately began cranking out tweets and emails calling him a racist.

For speaking about race.  As if he would know more than some lily-white Fox News dittohead about race than them, because the white people are the real victims here.  They are the real victims of racism.  Because.

This is the America the Supreme Court said no longer needed the Voting Rights Act.
