Oppps, I dun goofed
So I feel like a douchebag after jumping the gun on my post from yesterday. All I can say is in my defense, I didn’t have all the evidence. In retrospect, I should have waited. I did exactly what I hate, when other people do it, jumped to conclusions before having all the facts. What’s even worse is that I did exactly what the White House did….feel icky now. Most of what I said still holds true. I’m convinced that real racial tensions won’t go away until the generations that fought for equality and the ones that fought them go away.
I agree with Jonah Goldberg on this 100%.
As I’ve argued countless times before, this sort of politics is almost always counter-productive and quite often grotesque. Embracing the tactics you condemn in others requires, at minimum, that you stop condemning it in others. It also has the potential to sell your soul on layaway.
I don’t want to stop condeming other, I just need to be more vigilant about not using their tactics.
All I can say is, I dun goofed.
