Shirley Sherrod story. The culprit in this is Andrew Breitbart, a sociopath who wants nothing but to divide this nation. The administration, however and the White House's handling of the situation has been disappointing. I was watching the Today Show this morning and instead of focusing on the dark deception of false equivalencies drummed up by the right wing noise machine they focused on the administration's mistake. Exactly what I feared. Hopefully this will pass as we have much more pressing issues, but damn if this wasn't avoidable. I want to say more about my own experiences. I want to tell you how I empathize with Sherrod. I want to give you examples, but that would play into identity politics that I know happens too often. The real shame of this is it is clear we can't talk about race like grown ups. Not in Uhmerika. I have a busy and hectic day up ahead. Rock on!
