Read Nathan Newman on Al Sharpton and remember as well the name of the member state of the UN whose government was the sole political and economic partner of the white rulers of of South Africa.

If this doesn't satisfy your taste for post modern irony, I don't know what will. I myself don't know how to respond. It's all old news, but the 'Flash-movie' narrative brings it up to date, in a terrifying way. 'Disgust' doesn't do justice to my awareness that it was predictable; 'Indifference' doesn't describe my sadness, and 'Boredom' is too glib.
When I get over my anger I'm just fascinated.
