Naked Racism

Aug 31st, 2011

If you think our country has gotten past race, you should read the comments section of this article about the MLK monument. Maya Angelou has drawn attention to the fact that part of the inscription is decontextualized. She has a point. However, a lot of people just couldn't pass up an opportunity to make the world a worse place. There are hundreds and hundreds of responses along the lines of the screencaps below. In fact, a vast majority of the posts are overtly racist.

Of course, these are the same people that are always accusing others of "playing the race card."
