And that's new how? I'm not saying it's unimportant, just that the left's way of thinking about it needs adjustment.

What do you mean the present atmosphere? Hard core racists have never been shy about racist talk.

Whether he believes it makes a difference because I think it's worse when it's just a soundbite repeated without reflection. This country is full of politicians who aren't thinking deeply about anything at all really.

LBJ was a racist, but he was more compelling, and got more done, than this fuck ever will. Ditto Nixon
