Response to Atypical Liberal (Reply #16)

Thu Nov 8, 2012, 12:45 PM

30. A lot of it boils down to racism. Racism has poisoned the idea of public good in the U.S.

Our country was built on racism, slavery, and genocide, and it's an original sin that poisons us to this day. The Republicans want to believe an alternate reality, one in which America was built by the rugged individualism of Christian white men. They ignore the fact that millions of Americans responded to the Civil Rights Acts by abandoning public works.
