        to watch later. It is okay because my twitter feed will ruin it for me. I saw the score at 2-0 right when I was going to bed, then my Tivo decided to restart.

        In any case, what a great diary. I had to read it slow, which is a good sign for me. Chait was on Chris Hayes show last week. Hayes did not seem to get the points that you did. However, there was a black professor that seemed to disagree with him.

        I find it interesting that when people try to address race, they are accused of injecting race. I encounter this in a chatroom I frequent. Whenever I bring up a comment 'sounds racist', the nicest way I can put it, the response I get from the white chatters is simply 'it's not racist', followed by comments that I see race in everything.

        I am not so concerned about racist attacks from the right, but I am surprised by racial comments made by the left and the defense of racism from the left, in addition to blanket statements from the left 'that is not racist'.
