Oliver Willis: Running Vs. History

Oliver Willis (9/20/08)

Running Vs. History

The big takeaway I get from this poll about racial attitudes is that we’ve got a long road to go still for people to be dragged into the 21st century and leave their prejudices behind. I mean, the idea that there are still some people who just go, yep, blacks are boastful, lazy and shiftless in 2008 is kind of sad. Real sad. Maybe the message some get is that the Democrats should have played it safe and nominated a white man.

And maybe Dr. King shouldn’t have rocked the boat… right?
