navigating race

BBC North America editor (and campaign blogger-in-chief) Justin Webb doesn’t half say some odd things on occasion. He’s just described Iowa as “Mainly white, wholly un-Kenyan”.

Also I went on the Beeb website (switching to watching coverage on the Mac instead of the TV downstairs) and discovered someone on ‘Have Your Say’ bemoaning the loss of Aparteid in South Africa. Cripes.

Everyone is navigating race, for better or worse. I find myself prefering the Sarah Silverman bull-in-a-china-shop approach, at least from those whose underlying intentions are noble. Contrast that with John Bolton’s underhand negative implications about race – much more subtle but nefarious in intent.
