Happy Monday, my friends. Here below is the latest excellent effort from that podcaster extraordinaire, Mr. Burr Deming, who is also the creator and chief author of the superb blog Fair and Unbalanced.com (see my blogroll at bottom right – http://fairandunbalanced.com/). Burr has just undergone eye surgery and we’ll want to wish him a speedy recovery. As one who has undergone several eye surgeries myself, I can attest to how limiting and humbling they can be. So my very most heartfeltBEST WISHES FOR A SUCCESSFUL AND SPEEDY RECOVERY, dear friend Burr!
In Burr’s own words: “Racism is often unexamined except superficially. We skim along the surface of a single assumption. Racists are unspeakably evil. We, and those we include in our circles of friends, are not evil. What could be more clear? They, and we, are not touched by racism, except in our rejection of it.
Most bigotry is not binary, turned off and turned on as you would a light switch. A line drawn between racism and good will can be fuzzy. Sometimes it is so blurred it is not a line at all. It can be more like a rheostat. The light shines and dims as the dial is slowly turned. Few of those who hate the President because he simply does not belong in his position would consider their motivations to be racist. Racism is the province of monsters, on a level with child molesters. In the polite company of Fox News viewers, even those who wear tricornered hats at pub;ic gatherings, motives are pure. They must be.” Click on the link below to hear this latest masterpiece:
