    ...most people of color in U.S. DO think of themselves as Americans? That's not the point. The point is that progressive-minded voters don't like what Republicans are selling. Period. They'd like to equate American-ness with conservatism but voters rejected that. I hope they cling to this silly notion because they'll keep losing elections if they think their only job is to convince nonwhites that they are really like white people, really!

    The civil rights, gay rights and women's movements, designed to allow others to reach for power previously grasped only by white men, have made a real difference, and the outlines of 21st century America have emerged. -- Paul West of LA Times
