where's the outrage? and the odd economic analysis?
I see that our blogger-friends on the Right are keeping mum about the President's decision to honor so-called "Black Music Month," a radical departure from the color-blind, group-distinction-eschewing vision that so nobly drives the Right's race-related rhetoric these days. Should I be concerned that the use of racial categories, in the bestowing of Presidential honors, will cause reasonable but conservative white purchasers of music to think less highly of Joe Thompson on the purported grounds that he is merely a beneficiary of some undeserved race-based preference?
