    I understand the hurt that kossacks feel at racist portrayals of Obama, and at all the ignorance so many whites have about real fairness and sensitivity. But I don't understand why this is the urgent discussion we're still having a week later, given all the ways this country is ripping apart the real lives of black people (among many other groups) at so many levels.

    Shouldn't we at least be pie-fighting over fixing our schools, courts, prisons, governments . . .

    Though the reason we're having the "discussion" weeks later is because enthusiastic Obama fans have been searching for something, anything else to talk about other than NSA spying, drones, and (until recently) how bad the ACA roll-out was going -- and a way to attack critics of Obama as "Rall-like" bigots. They're leaping at the chance to change the subject, and thus perpetuating the "meta" tempest in a teapot.
