  •  Lampreys have cloaca? (9+ / 0-)

    Learn something every day.

    Anyway, as others have said, the festering racism is just on full view for the world to see these days, isn't it?  I'd like to see it as a positive development -- lancing that boil on the lamprey's ass, as it were -- but if the racists and the purveyors of racism never change, what good is it doing?

    I guess waking up oblivious white America to the racism still being faced by blacks is good, but only if it moves us to do something about it.

    (Kind of like how I would love to see a first female president, but am already bracing for the sexist, misogynistic nastiness that such a milestone will be sure to bring.  I mean, if George Will is writing about the privilege of rape now, imagine how unhinged he'll get when he has to hear about President Clinton or President Warren or President Gilibrand or whatever every day?  He'll do the journalistic equivalent of streaking the quad and singing "Isn't it awfully nice to have a penis".)
