Pink and Gray

I was wrong, and I freely, and proudly admit the error of my ways. I'd been indoctrinated like the vast majority of you that race and ethnicity mattered. But September 11, 2001 wasn't about ethnicity, and neither was Hurricane Katrina.

It wasn't about black and white, it was about pink and gray.

Skin color doesn't matter. It is about the tribes we choose to belong to.

Go read the single best essay I have ever read.

I do have one, very minor, disagreement with Bill Whittle, however. Afther the battle, even sheepdogs are allowed to cry.

Note: Thanks to Glenn Reynolds for pointing these links out.

Outstanding... Kinda mirrors my earlier posts... New Orleans has been in the *crapper* for a long time, now, all they need to do is pull the flush handle...

Ditto what Tony said. I found myself nodding to just about everything he said.

Bill Whittle is a national treasure. I eagerly await each of his essays, and, as usual. he hit the nail right on the head with his latest.
