Go Post A Letter, White Man

If you saw this guy in traffic and felt a little bit angry, or saw this jerk at your neighborhood political rally...



...and noticed that none of the white people around him challenged him...

Well, just think on this thought and smile:


I am really enjoying the new Martin Luther King Jr stamp - just think about all those white bigots, licking the backside of a black man.

But Algernon, do you not sense that the tide is turning? I have to tell you, I posted about a sign that I found (vote right, vote white). I submitted a column to our paper well over a month ago, complete with picture. Never got published. Since then, homemade signs are popping up all over. My cousin got called a nigger lover in the Kwik Fill last month. But all of a sudden, with the economic woes, it just seems to be turning. The most encouraging thing to me? Algernon, there was a hateful sign at the end of the Glade Bridge. It was knocked down, broken, and it has not been replaced. Friend, the times, they are a-changing! Stand up with me and rejoice.

Sarah Palin, by the way, I've no doubt that she's an excellent, excellent mom, a fine Christian woman, cute as a button. None of this qualifies her to be vice president.

I'm glad to know a sign like that was torn down, Debby, and would be most pleased if shown that a tide is turning. On the other hand, I'm not one to overestimate the decency of the human animal.

Yeah. I'm an idealist. Gets me knocked on my ass on a fair regular basis, but I just can't seem to help myself. And, really, I meet a lot of exceedingly decent people, truth be told.
