What we talk about when we talk about race
Avedon brings... Well, a little light, as opposed to heat, to the supposed racism of some in the Clinton campaign that had some of the OFB heading for the fainting couch, clutching Obama's halo. (Wow. LBJ got civil rights legislation passed, knowing it was the right thing, and knowing it would totally fuck his own party for generation. That denigrates MLK how? Sheesh.)
OTOH, as Avedon says, she's from the North, and I'm a WASP so far North that I consider DC southern. Eh? Maybe there's something I'm missing? Check the post out and say what's what.
Because if there's any place that we can have a passionate, honest, analytical -- and angry and misunderstanding-filled, as befits the topic -- thread on race, it's here.
OTOH, maybe we're all talked out on this. For now. Over to you.
