    Most whites didn't have problems with racism until some discovered that it was wrong. You act like people do not change. Well they do.

    •  Warren has "preached to the choir" (9+ / 0-)

      any sudden reversal would diminish his audience, potential and collection plate.

      However, once the conversation begins, then moderation might happen, first on getting the hot button abortion issue out of the voting booth.

      That right to choose issue looks to have precedence, according to the early reports.  If that was the issue that cut into the catholic bloc, then acceptance will get the "pro-death", "infanticide" meme out of the conversation next time around, make the Brownbecks/Palins/Hucklebees more "out of touch"...

    •  Many whites didn't have a problem with (3+ / 0-)

      racism until they realized that you can't segregate one group without segregating everyone else and that segregation didn't provide a benefit to either side.

      Nevertheless, segregation remains an attractive strategy to people who are into exercising power over other people.  You know, "divide and conquer."
      Some people even go so far as to segregate themselves in "gated communities."  So, they live in fear.  Check out Michael Moore's "Bowling for Columbine" to see his take on it.

      When religious leaders preach about hell-fire they do a lot less damage because being afraid of what happens after you're dead is a lot less debilitating that being afraid of what's down the road or around the bend.

      How do you tell a predator from a protector? The predator will eat you sooner rather than later.
