It seems that the President may be coming around. Or more likely he has finally noticed how destructive the Democrats divisive racial politicking has been. In an interview with Candy Crowley on CNN’s State of the Union Sunday, he said something we’ve been saying for years!
Suggesting that America is inherently racist does nothing but stall progress! It spits in the face of all the very real progress we’ve made over the years and discounts the many advances we’ve made as a nation of diversity. It’s mean-spirited and just plain wrong.
I think an unwillingness to acknowledge that progress has been made cuts off the possibility of further progress. If critics want to suggest that America is inherently and irreducibly racist, then why bother even working on it?
I have seen change in my own life. So has this country. And those who would deny that, I think, actually foreclose the possibility of further progress, rather than advancing it.
