Jay Nordlinger's Impromptus on National Review Online is even more critical of the current state of racial disharmony in America.
Look, I've written against the ghastly racialization of American society for years — and I'm not sure I can say anything more. Excuse the defeatist air, but that's the way I'm feeling right now. I'm just about ready to wave the white (oops) flag.
If you say a white teacher can't teach 'black history,' you must say that a black teacher can't teach 'white history.' (Why should we have 'black history' and 'white history' anyway? When it comes to the United States, black people are as much a part of the story as cherry trees, Westward expansion, D-Day, and everything else.) When you say that black children must have 'black role models,' because white ones won't do, you must say, at the same time, that white children can't look up to Jackie Robinson, Marian Anderson, etc.
But you've heard these points a million times. There's nothing left to do but sigh — or get madder, which, on second thought, is better — more constructive — than sighing.
