[Xmca-l] You told me so.

I apologize for sending you all the link to the WHOLE NY Times for today.  Like Paul, when I have a moment, I’m a dangerous man. 
I should have sent you the following link to an editorial in the paper about Obama that harkens back to emails here about very different constuals ot Obama’s Charleston talk. Okay, now that I have arrived at a higher level of consciousness thanks to Paul and David. Still, what to do with Michael Eric Dyson, a well educated, staunch defender of Obama, also a man of color. And with the audience, largely of color, at the AME church where he spoke? Is there hope? As if “we" are all of color, except us white folk. Hmmm…That seems to be turning the single-drop-of-blood rule on its head. Colorless is NOT beautiful. A bunch of angry red necks is what you get. Who can be very difficult to listen to. Is there hope?

Here’s another aticle from today that was worth my while. Here’s an example of a red neck even dumber than me, which may mean there IS hope!
