Duncan Black: "In a weird kind of way I actually respect Pat Buchanan because unlike most racists he articulates pretty well and honestly just what his racism is all about."
During a radio appearance promoting his book, MSNBC analyst Pat Buchanan argued that blacks and whites were more unified during the 1950s than they are today. Buchanan argued that "what we had then, which was a sense of cultural and social one-ness, we were a people, that I think that is what's being lost." Buchanan added that while blacks considered themselves Americans first and foremost during the era of segregation, today they're using "hyphenated terms" like "African-American" to describe themselves.

While honoring the efforts and sacrifices of the people whose struggles culminated in Brown v. Board of Education, the Supreme Court case that ended school segregation in this country, New York University Professor Derrick Bell provocatively suggested last week that generations of black children might have been better off if the case had failed.
Duncan Black:"I generally think concerns about the ill impacts of urban gentrification are overblown."

"I know and have friends and acquaintances who are African-American..."

My general comments: "We're voting for the nigger."

A few hours ago I added a comment to this post at TPM, responding to statements approving of the fact that people at OWS who had attacked Obama as Zionist had been shouted down by other protesters and called Nazis. I posted a link: "Tel Aviv: City launches program to prevent relationships between Jewish girls and minorities." My comment was removed and the post has been edited, removing the last paragraphs and the references to Obama.
