Race Matters

Mark Galli offers a thoughtful post here on racial inequalities based on an Associated Press article--which Galli (correctly) judges to be a "textbook example of sloppy reporting: ignoring historical context and using an opening quote to determine an ideological tone for the entire piece."

Galli also points to an article by CT editor-at-large Ed Gilbreath, who writes on Kramer's Sins--and Ours. And even in the seemingly simple task of pointing to this article, Galli acknowledges struggling with "the confusion and awkwardness of race."

I appreciate his honest perspective, join him in the fog, and echo his prayer: "Lord, have mercy."
