Election 2016

Who or What Is ‘Racist’ and ‘Sexist’ in This Scenario?

esquire.comIt is, of course, axiomatic around this shebeen that no particular incident is About Race because nothing is ever About Race. This can be applied to two interesting items in the recent news.

First, remember last week when a Mississippi congresscritter moved to take the name of John Lewis off of a U.S. Navy ship? That was not About Race because the Mississippi guy just wanted naval vessels named after heroes and presidents, except for segregationist senators from his home state. Just when you thought this guy had locked up the Croix de Douche among his legislative peers, along comes veteran meathead Steve King of Iowa to try and go him one better. Hometown paper with the 411.
