It's time to discuss race in America
Out of curiosity, who's invited to this "discussion"? Reverend Wright? Don Imus? Oprah? David Duke? Jay Leno? Tyra Banks? Brittney Spears? What about 'ole Gordon here?
This is the kind of liberal blather that has resulted in the racial issues in the first place. It goes back to my theory of meetings; nothing has ever been accomplished by "talking". Just ask how the issues in Darfur have improved since the UN started having meetings on the subject.
Nothing has ever been improved simply by talking about it. Has a bully ever been stopped because Jr. tried "talking" to him? Just ask Ralphie.
In my mind, the more we talk about this crap the more ingrained it becomes. I'll quote a liberal on the subject. None other than Christopher Hitchens
People who think with their epidermis or their genitalia or their clan are the problem to begin with. One does not banish this specter by invoking it. If I would not vote against someone on the grounds of "race" or "gender" alone, then by the exact same token I would not cast a vote in his or her favor for the identical reason. Yet see how this obvious question makes fairly intelligent people say the most alarmingly stupid things.
