    Church burnings in the South. Remember those? Big stories in the Washington Post. Lots of media chatter, never missing an opportunity for a consciousness-raising session that furthers the goals of liberalism.

    Looking back with the hindsight of fifteen years, however, gives one pause. Or should. It was false.

    It turns out there was no truth to what was widely reported at the time from President Clinton on down to the boring PBS McNeil-Lehrer NewsHour, that racist whites were targeting predominantly black churches esp. in the South. No truth. It turns out church burnings reached its height in 1980, going down sharply each decade.

    But being on the left, as Dennis Prager rightly says, means never having to say you're sorry. Is it okay to broadly target a population as being racist when there isn't evidence? I guess so if it's whites. But I consider it vicious slander.

    I know it's old, like me, but the truth should never go out of style.

    What's this? More race-baiting from our resident racist? Anything else ever cross your one-track mind?

    We get it.

    You don't like liberal white people who talk too much about racism in America.
    You also love black people so much that you can't understand why anyone else would not like black people and, therefor, think anyone who says blacks are treated unfairly are insane.

    I anxiously await your next dissertation with proper citation and calm, logical indignation about why no one agrees with your racist bullsh!t.

    Thanks for coming in.

    Racists have lost the war, and they have to get used to it.

    Again...like any other used-up mythology, we just have to wait until the ignorant old fahts (you know who you are, State) die off.

    The wife and I are watching Guess Who's Coming to Dinner tonight. I love that movie. Spencer Tracy is great in that. The script is unbelievable.

    I love all Sidney Poitier movies ... One of my favorite actors of all time.
    His voice was impeccable ... his acting was off the charts.
    Obama gave him a Presidential Medal of Freedom this year.

    always appreciated Hepburn but that voice took getting used to.
