“Remember all that hoopla last year when it was announced that actor Kal Penn would be teaching a class at the University of Pennsylvania? Well, class is in session, and Kumar’s got your syllabus right here. “
“I couldn’t shake the feeling that they deliberately wrote this Asian character into the story as a way of mitigating the image of the hordes of evil Asians that populate the movie. Perhaps to appease angry people like myself. “”
Caroline Kennedy endorses Obama: “they could feel inspired and hopeful about America the way people did when my father was president…That is why I am supporting a presidential candidate in the Democratic primaries, Barack Obama.”
“With news of the formation of an anti-Hillary group called “C.U.N.T.” I think it’s time to discuss the widespread disdain over so-called identity politics…It’s not “petty” for people to read “Citizens United Not Timid” as an attack on women”
“I think that there is a fair chance that certain people will try to use the fact that Obama reached the White House as an opportunity to declare that the struggle for civil rights is over.”
“Barack Obama didn’t reach out. Hillary Clinton didn’t reach out. “You’d think that the fact that…you’re the ninth most-visible person on TV would equate to having a presidential candidate reach out and have you campaign for them”

More race war alarmism: “Author and race expert Earl Hutchinson says simmering tensions between African-Americans and Latinos could have a huge impact on the ’08 race.”
LOL! “In the wake of Hillary’s staggering defeat in South Carolina, in which she received only approximately 20 percent of the black vote, serious questions have arisen concerning whether or not her husband, Bill Clinton, is Black enough.”
