Quote of the Day

"[The] promise [from the Brown v board of education decision]-- a colorblind society -- has been traduced by the "diversity" exception to the Equal Protection Clause. That exception allows white majorities to feel noble while treating blacks and certain other minorities as seasoning -- a sort of human oregano -- to be sprinkled across a student body to make the majority's educational experience more flavorful."

George Will

Will always can pull a word that leaves me fumbling for the dictionary.

His comparison of minorities to oregano is both visually and emotionally powerful, though. Sadly, also true.

Did you catch Jesse Jackson comparing the court to the klan?
