    the equivalency thing.

    The problem with doing a "Hey, we're all to blame here" position on race is that.....well, Jesus, where do I start. I guess with a couple hundred years of slavery? There's no way to say "Hey, we're all to blame here" after that. There just isn't.  

    And he also neatly sidesteps things like the re-invention of slavery via the prison system.

    It's like it's all about whether or not we're civil to each other right now. It almost reduces the conversation to being about obeying the law and having good manners.

    The party of Kennedy is also the party of Eastland. The party of Javits is also the party of Goldwater. Where is our party? Where is the political party that will make it unnecessary to march on Washington?
