History to the Back of the Bus

Adam Serwer:

FOX's singular focus on so-called reverse racism is but the latest iteration of this inversion of history, responding not to the racial shame provoked by a people demanding recognition of their rights and dignity but the political interest in weakening a president who happens to be black. But the deliberate attempt to reverse the historical roles so completely -- the NAACP are the "real racists" -- is the self-implicating fingerprint. When you try to photoshop yourself into the March on Washington, the only ones who won't notice are the ones who desperately want to believe you.

They have only just begun...
