Quotations of the day on racism

1. Beto O’Rourke:

Our country was founded on racism—and is still racist today. In Arkansas, I said why I believe there’s no denying this reality; and why it’s on all of us to change it.

2. Brit Hume (in response to Beto O’Rourke):

In fact, no country on earth has done more to overcome racial prejudice both in law and practice. Indeed, racism today is nearly universally rejected in America, which is why the left tries so hard to pin the label on its political opponents.

3. Jeff Jacboby (in response to Bret Hume)

Exactly right. That’s why the left works overtime to paint every conservative, every non-PC dissenter, every honest critic as a racist. Its political power depends on claiming the moral high ground, especially when it comes to race. The honest colorblind liberalism of the 1960s is gone.

4. Thomas Sowell (in 2012):

Racism is not dead, but it is on life support — kept alive by politicians, race hustlers and people who get a sense of superiority by denouncing others as “racists.”
