Democrats in Black and White

("How White Democrats Moved Left")

Mr. Brooks castigates those who take issue with the many imperfections in our society, somehow making good intentions seem bad.

Liberal becoming toxic, a synonym for white privilege, for unrealistic demands and expectations. Those of color of Democratic stripe being far less idealistic, far more concerned with fundamental issues like jobs and taxes.


Do not label or pigeonhole Mr. Brooks. It makes you appear small, intellectually lazy. We are all people who are concerned about the destruction of our values, of our educational system, of our right to choose, our right to vote, our right to exist in an environment, in its various meanings, that is not choking us. We worry each day about our nation's physical and intellectual well being.

Don't try to segregate us, Mr. Brooks. We are more complicated, more complex than that. 

We are far better than you perceive. You who see our color in black and white.

You hit the nail on the head. For me, Brooks has ALWAYS been "intellectually lazy". Full of fluff, no introspection or detail.--RE
