  •  I'm sorry you took that from what I wrote (0+ / 0-)

    The last thing I want to tell you is what you should feel. That's up to you. I'm only sharing my perspective, and trying to explain why I think what I think, and maybe try to express why I think that perspective is helpful. But we can look at objective facts, statistics, and laws that have changed. Those changes have occurred. But I am sorry if you think that I'm not qualified to comment on the changes that this country has undergone over time based on my personal experiences. I don't accept that restriction on my ability, as both a scholar and a human being, to speak about these issues. We are on the same side here, so I do ask you to see that and to treat me as an ally, so that we can work together to achieve the goals we share.

    My forthcoming book Obama's America: A Transformative Vision of Our National Identity will be published in Summer 2012 by Potomac Books.
