wRight Answer Is . . .

Our friend Stu Bykofsky at the Philadelphia Daily News has a great column today that takes the form of a pop quiz on the Rev. Jerimiah Wright. Stu says:
Once again, R-A-C-E has emerged as the thorniest rose in American life and politics. Barack Obama's powerful speech on Tuesday may have laid it to rest (for now). Before we wave bye-bye to the trapped-in-the-'50s (1950s? 1850s? 1750s?), attic-crazy Rev. Jeremiah Wright, let's salute him with a multiple-choice quiz.

Wow. Funny, but why "stuck in the 50s?". I don't really understand that part of the joke. Really, as a white person, I don't really know what it's like to be called a n---er; nor do I know what it's like to live as part of a society that derives much of its identity from "all men are created equal," while subjugating an entire race of people well into the 20th century. Hypocracy.
