So Much For The End Of Racism

By: David Neiwert Wednesday April 23, 2008 6:00
One of the right's favorite ways of characterizing the state of racial relations in recent years has been to proclaim that for the most part, racism is a dead letter, an anachronism, a quaint artifact of dusty history mostly relegated to a few dark fringish corners. Dinesh D'Souza even wrote a wingnut-welfare book about it titled The End of Racism. And then there was the time Tony Snow proclaimed: "Here's the unmentionable secret: Racism isn't that big a deal any more. No sensible person supports it. Nobody of importance preaches it. It's rapidly becoming an ugly memory."

What's wrong expat? See the writing on the wall?

It's there, but it's not because he is black.

As the great one said himself - "Words matter".

Yes, indeed they do. And his words, and the words of his racist, terrorists, anti-American associates are what will doom him.
