I am happy we have a chance to face our blighted past. I am betting our more race ignorant posters will remain silent.

The N.Y. Slimes wont let me read it unless I subscribe. I think not.


Are you certain Nancy didn't think the sign on the door said SALOON instead of Salon?

Name calling, so effective in making your point. BTW, I read both the NY Times and the WSJ so I get both sides of the story.

In brief, the 1619 Project from the Times contends that the history of slavery in America is important, relates to many things that are happening today and pretty much swept under the carpet in history books. Some pretty compelling arguments are made.. and to be clear, this is not about reparations or payments, just the history.

I find it very disturbing that in my lifetime, World War II veterans were beaten and lynched with no-one being held accountable.

Feel free to continue name calling, if that makes you happy.

Most likely just as happy as saying Radio Sucks.

In defense of Bryce, asking folks opinion about a link that requires a subscription, well …
Same with WSJ really. Get to read about a paragraph and a half, then need to subscribe to see the rest of the article.

Impolite behavior should never be defended. I sometimes forget that I do have online subscriptions and don't run into the same paywall that others do. I will try to be more careful.
