    Thanks for clarifying your position about being a progressive, and I'm glad you had a chance to read what I've written here. Obviously we disagree on some things here, particularly about Obama, but I respect your take on these matters. The focus on white resentment results from the fact that no one needs to convince black people about the need to fight racism. But we do need to convince some whites about that need. Hence the focus on their "concerns." That's it, it's just a matter of pragmatism. The progress over the past decades tells me that whites have changed and that we can continue to move forward. The key is to isolate the moderates from the radicals and demagogues.
