Anyway, there has been a recent uptick in some conservative (small 'c' intentional) and academic circles about racial issues -- and their political and economic consequences -- since the elevation of Barack Obama, Savior of the Universe, to the office of the Presidency in what was supposed to be the most racist country in human history. Much of it, admittedly, can be most unpleasant and will strike the casual reader as downright mean and vicious, if they view it any other than an academic spirit.
I can promise you, that when it comes to some of the things you might read on this subject -- things I'm putting out here just so that you can read them -- you'll be horrified if you don't approach them with an open mind. I can also promise you that 90% of White People don't even have a thought process that begins to allow them to attempt to understand many of these conversations, regardless of context; these are the people, after all, who are consumed by the questions of whether or not Steven Tyler is really boinking the female contestants on American Idol, and why hasn't Tim Tebow released his own fragrance while the marketing iron is still hot?
In other words: the majority of White People, much like the majority of ALL people in America, couldn't find their own asses with both hands and a flashlight... and at least one government program.
