Racism accusations? I’m bored

Paula Deen, Al Sharpton, and real racism

President Obama is right. We need a “national conversation” about race this instant. Let us have that “teachable moment.” In a productive conversation, both sides speak. Otherwise conversation can be confused with self-righteous lecturing.

Racism is poison. So are fake accusations of racism. So are double standards that mete out different punishments based on race, and so is injecting race into irrelevant situations.

A conversation is useless without examples and evidence.
