Bush's other shoe...
I have learned to cringe, whenever Bush makes an overture to a progressive organization. It is now a fact of life that if he champions a cause in public, he's killing it in private. When he agreed to speak in front of the NAACP (who gets a lot wrong, but got Bush precisely right) I had one thought: shit. Luckily, African Americans aren't in internment camps, but Kay did bring this tidbit to my attention:
Civil rights hiring shifted in Bush era
So, much for 'My party has not reached out to African Americans.' I guess a reasonable mind could see why. I especially like the part where the Justice Department has seen a dramatic drop in pursuing cases of discrimination against African Americans and sought discrimination against whites and Christians.
Yeah, those groups are under fire.
