I missed this last week, so I’m pulling editorial prerogative and doing two LOTW’s this week (if I remember Friday).
Jonah Goldberg is asking what was so special or prescient about Obama’s speech about race in America:
…or others — like La Raza or the college professors scrambling to follow Obama’s lead — when they say we need more conversation, they really mean their version of reality should win the day. Substitute “conversation” with “instruction” and you’ll have a better sense of where these people are coming from and where they want their “dialogue” to take us.
Effectively, Obama told us if we’re white we’re racist, whether or not we know it.
Yea, that’s affirming and positive and, heh… accurate.
