America: Still Quite Firmly Racist

Tim Wise trots out a horrifying litany of evidence of racism in America.  It is staggering, humiliating and appalling to see it all spelled out like that.

Here is his article, entitled "

Read it, and weep.

It really is a stunning list, and one I will refer people to when they try to argue that the United States is no longer country where race matters.

Anger is a call to action.
Despair is a call to surrender.

You feel both?
