I was on C-Span’s Morning Journal today to talk about my piece in the magazine. It was the usual lively affair. You can watch it here if you’d like.
I’m always amazed by the baggage some C-Span viewers bring. For instance, to the best of my recollection, I didn’t mention black people in any way, shape or form. And yet this is one of the e-mails I got from a C-Span viewer today:
You need to learn about all people. You are woefully ignorant about people of all races. That is what is wrong with people like you. You have tunnel vision. Pick up a Jet or Ebony magazine and see that blacks are very diversified. We are not all on welfare looking for a handout. We do work and pay taxes. by the way, 75% of the people on welfare are white. Look it up. You can’t hurt us without hurting your own kind.
I honestly have no idea what I could have said that would rationally motivate someone to send me this e-mail.
