JAMES TARANTO ON THE CHANGING RACIAL ZEITGEIST: “It used to be that white conservatives were ever fearful of being cast as racist. Today Tucker feels it necessary to declare defensively that she isn’t prejudiced. Liberals, even black liberals like Tucker, no longer feel confident simply asserting their moral superiority when it comes to matters of race. This turning of the tables suggests that blacks and whites, as well as liberals and conservatives, are approaching a sort of equality. We won’t have gotten beyond race until both sides can make their arguments in good faith without such disclaimers. But this new parity is a big step in the right direction.”
