Quote of the Day
From Ta-Nehisi Coates:
We live in a country that may well be offended by racism, but it’s equally offended that anyone might actually charge as much.
So true. Read his whole post.
[hat tip John Cain]
MORE: If someone calls you a racist and you know that you’re not, you either a) ignore them or b) explain to them why you’re not. What you don’t do is loudly bellyache over and over (sometimes for months on end) about how terrible it was that someone called you a racist. I’ll just hang that thought out there…
UPDATE: Yet another great quote from (guess who?) StrangeAppar8us in the comments below…
Byron York’s casual, effortless suggestion that America’s Blacks are the “Free” space on the Bingo Card of US public opinion is so insanely appalling that my eyes are still facing backwards from reading it.
