    loudly dismissing facts - and blaming the 'anti-American' people who collect and analyze them - ignited in the fevered race swamps of angry denial and shame.  Their irrationality has only increased over the years.  We can probably convince them that, absent racialized law enforcement, blacks are as likely to commit crimes as others right after you convince them that Obama was born in Hawaii.

    Rather than reconcile themselves to the hard truths of the post-Civil Rights Era world, conservatives' and racists' irrational penchant towards denial and blaming is infecting more and more of our public policy, from the teaching of science to responding to global warming to even little things like increasing light bulb efficiency.
