From the National Conversation
Here we go again.
On Tuesday, Barack Obama said that the Bush administration is at fault for doing nothing to defuse a quiet riot brewing among blacks.
The problem? Black people displaced by Hurricane Katrina. He went so far as to compare the resentment and frustration of the federal government’s response to Katrina, to the Rodney King riots of 1992.
(Remember those gems of black frustration? Los Angeles erupted after a jury acquitted four police officers of assault charges in the 1991 beat down of Rodney King. Several days of rioting ensued where black people really proved a point by burning down their own damn neighborhoods.)
You know a presidential candidate is out to lunch when he starts speaking in oxymorons.
