Quote of the Day: Racism in America Edition

Reason: Hit & Run | Michael C. Moynihan | Is Frank Rich the Only Non-Racist Left in America?

Instead of a post-racial America, are we now stuck with the racial politics of the university, where we presume that everyone is motivated by hate until they conclusively prove otherwise?
All that "post-racial America" talk was nothing but daydreams and fairy farts.  Racists are never going to stop being racists because of an election -- any election -- nor are the folks who see racism lurking behind every hedge going to suddenly realize their opponents might have reasonable disagreements.
