In the article, conservative Pat Buchanan makes many outrageous statements beginning with this:
America has been the best country on earth for black
You'll have to read the article to follow his line of reasoning. It is quite disturbing. And Buchanan would call himself a Christian.
You'll find it interesting to note that Buchanan makes no mention of slavery, lynchings, beatings, rapes, Jim Crow laws, or any of the crimes against black Americans that are a part of our history and our present.
It makes me wonder if Mr. Buchanan has ever had the privilege of knowing people who are not like him. Or maybe that is the problem. Maybe that is the reason he has such extreme views.
Why is it so often conservatives who say such heartless things? Is there anyone who could help us better understand where Pat is coming from? Does anyone feel that this type of dialogue is helpful for dealing with racial attitudes?
