Hello darkness my old friend...I've come to talk with you again....
Or so goes the lyrics to the great Simon & Garfunkle hit.
The sound of silence is also what you get when attempting to blog about the great racial divide in this country. Every time I mention the subject all commenting immediately stops. The truth is, the left's speech codes on the subject are deadly....say the wrong thing and lose your job, be subject to public ridicule and denunciation, and of course, be excoriated by the left as a RAAAAACIST. There is no enthusiasm for such a discussion, no matter how badly honest discussion is needed.
Who loses by this lack of honesty and openness? Mainly black people, I think. Then again, the left and the Democratic Party do not want to see economic progress among blacks, they want to see continuing dependency on governmental hand-outs and set asides. Only by keeping blacks dependent can they count on them as a solid voting block.
The only alternative to honest discussion is to continually regurgitate all of the PC truisms that aren't true, and I am sick to death of that. Aren't you? In any case, I will leave this subject alone for now.
