    defend BWD? Yes, there are people who pull the "you criticized Obama, you're racist card" and they are rightfully told to piss off. This is a different matter altogether.

      we failed to nurture an environment in which users like Adept2U (or whatever his/her nick was) could decry presumed white males as "racists" whenever she wanted to, and for whatever reason (including none at all).

        people of color and women aren't comfortable. As clearly illustrated by the lack of people of color and women. Sure, there are some, but they are a much smaller percentage than either the internet in general and even more so the party. That's not an accident.

          I sing praises in the church of nonsense, but in my heart I'm still an atheist, demanding sense of all things.

              1. You didn't answer jbou's question.
              2. Why hasn't this diary been added to Black Kos?
              3. As someone to the left of Richard Nixon, I don't feel comfortable here either, but I'm not going to let that intimidate me.
