American racial politics – very fucked up

Posted by That Other Mike on 09/04/2011

See the title of this post.

Jeez. I’m not going to claim that the UK is some kind of bastion of racial harmony across the board, or that we all link hands and sing “Ivory and Ebony” during our weekly Appreciate-A-Minority meetings, because that’s not true. We certainly have problems around race, religion and ethnicity; some very bad ones, in fact.

That said, American racial politics is pretty messed up. FWIW, I think everyone involved in this is kind of being dickish to each other. Joan Walsh was hamfisted and insensitive, but she’s not being actively evil either.

In short, the whole thing is a big clusterfuck. The whole B-J commentariat’s habit of engaging in dialogue only to the extent of calling each other fuckheads is getting a bit silly, too.
