Tea Party vs KKK

Grayson was right about the Racism in America and so was your guest. I felt your pain in trying to defend Liberal racism vs the Tea Party/KKK brand. The problem is - Racism is Racism. Whether it's LBJ, Reagan, Bill Clinton or Mitch McConnell the impact is the same because the intent is consistent. White domination is the balance on the right and left and keeps African Americans, Latinos and other people of color holding their noses and breaking for the exits. If and when equality in EVERY facet of public and private life become a real goal in American society, then and only then can we stand and defend the principles you felt uncomfortable with this afternoon. Liberal racism does more damage than right wing hatred could ever do. Right winged, Tea Party racism is expected; Liberal backstabbing is unexpected and therefore much more insidious. Trust is the issue. As African Americans we expect that thought and deed are synonymous when on the frontline fighting for equal rights for all. It’s especially painful when Whites on the Right and Whites on the Left call a truce and start communing in White privilege - with the same wink and nod used to condone a night ride. Honesty is in short supply every time the shoulder-to-shoulder march from the left is abandoned for the White-on-White exclusive debates. The modern home of segregation is in ideas, opinions and solutions... they only count if they come from exclusively White designs to serve the same above all others..

"The Saddest Thing Is This Won't Be Breaking News"

Thom plus logo As the world burns, and more and more fossil fuels are being used every day planet-wide, atmospheric carbon dioxide levels passed 416 ppm this week at the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii. In the 300,000 years since the emergence of modern humans, carbon dioxide levels have never been this high.
