    Jews traditionally react to any news concerning a Jew by asking themselves, "Is this bad for the Jews?" Joe Lieberman, for example, or Eric Cantor.

    Is Allen West good for Blacks? No. He isn't good for anybody, and I am glad to see the last of him in Congress.

    Is overt racism good for Blacks? Obviously not.

    However, let us look just a bit deeper. As in this diary, as in many incidents in the last campaign, knowing about the racism, and fighting it, are good for Blacks. Knowing about voter suppression and responding by voting in greater numbers, as Blacks, Latinos, women, and college students just did, is good for each of those groups.

    More importantly, it is good for all of us, and we agree that it is good for all of us, and even for the racists. That is the best thing about being Progressives. That is what distinguishes us from the racists.

    America—We built that!
