  •  The word racist is hurtful. So is racism only (6+ / 0-)

    more so. My multi-racial grandchild has not yet been born and I was hurt and angered by his column. Furious really, thinking about that child coming into a world that includes idiots like him in places of power.

    It is possible that my reading of it was a result of his really, really bad writing as mush as racism. Hard to say, but wanting to throw up at the sight of interracial children is not "conventional thinking" -- it just isn't. Mild disapproval might have been normal 50 years ago in some backward zones of the world and there always will be racists, but they are now, mercifully a very, very long way from conventional thinkers. They are just scum and there aren't a lot of them.

    I will read the Washington Post again once he is gone.

    We have only just begun and none too soon.
