Townhall Column

My column is up over at Townhall. It discusses the fall-out from the racism spewed by Michael Richards -- and argues that, contrary to the assertions of people like the Washington Post's Eugene Robinson, America is hardly a racist country. Quite the opposite, in fact; we're a people that has tried hard to atone for racial injustices of the past. Exhibit A is the entire contretemps surrounding the chairmanship of the House Intelligence Committee.

It's remarkable that a man (of any color) removed from a federal judgeship for bribery would even be considered for the chairmanship -- and that the MSM would treat Nancy Pelosi's promise to the Black Caucus as a sufficient rationale for doing so. Even so, the fact that the entire matter has been handled this way certainly suggests that we make remarkable efforts to be "sensitive" . . . to a fault.
