It Takes One To Know One

I will freely admit that I am no fan of Rush Limbaugh. While I cannot look into another man’s heart, judging by his past public utterances on racial subjects he does not seem to be extending a welcome hand across the great racial divide. He strikes me as the type that as soon as he found out I was in an interracial marriage, he’d feel compelled, to my embarrassment, to begin the famous lecture “some of my best friends are….”

Yet, to allow the Rev. Al Sharpton to comment on the matter of Mr. Limbaugh’s removal from a group bidding on a sports team (due to concern over his past comments on race) is a perfect example of how the question of race causes Americans to immediately slide a few standard deviations down the Bell Curve. I suppose it does make sense though, as who better to tell us all about a racist than one of our country’s supreme race baiters, Mr. Tawana Brawley himself?
