Jay Nordlinger of the National Review reports that white people calling black members of Congress "Nigger" this Sunday proves racism no longer exists in the USA.
Supporting the lynching of black men was once a cinch to getting elected, opposing it, not so much. This was all part of a grand and glorious tradition which created blues music and death, but not all at the same time.
Now that we're not openly and freely killing uppity black men and setting them on fire in stately elm trees in the town square, but just calling them "Nigger" as they go to vote in the United States Congress, this can only be seen as a sign of sure and steady progress in race relations.
As Nina Simone herself said, "Go Slow."
I think "both sides of the issue" could benefit from that advice.
