    There is a difference.  

    In 1869 I would expect to hear "He was a nice man, but.."

    OK.. Fair enough.  Wrong, but it was the prevailing culture.  That doesn't make it right by a long shot, but you would expect to hear that then.

    This is 2013.  
    We have an African American President.  
    We have an African American Attorney General (Who should resign, but we have one).  
    We have had an African American Secretary of State (A terrible one, but we had one).
     We have an African American Ventriloquist for Scalia sitting on the Supreme Court.

    This is Revoltingly shocking.  But not surprising.  I have been at some meetings with people I am scared to think about, and I try to show them the error of their ways.  And fail.  Sickening.
