This is a diary I posted on dkos yesterday. I am pleased enough with it that I want to make it my first post here on docudharma. Looking around the site and seeing who is posting here, I recognize a lot of names as people I respect from dkos and have seen a lot less of recently. So I expect to be here more as a haven from the relentless Obama diaries. Although this is technically an Obama essay concerning an absurd media “issue,” the point of this diary is to take a look at race, and to make explicit the racism behind the Rev. Wright controversy.
(But one thing first: because I can, I want to say right off the top that you have to be an idiot to blithely assume there is no chance that 9/11 was a conspiracy. Ahhhh! The smell of freedom.)
Oh yeah, and thanks to pfiore8 for inviting me here.
So here goes nothing. Please be kind.
