Gone are the times when black people were hunted down and lynched, times when Congress had to provide African-Americans with legislative protection, like the Voting Rights Act of 1965, the greatest achievement of the US civil rights movement. …

“Our nation has made great strides,” Chief Justice John Roberts, born in Buffalo, New York, wrote in the majority decision.

But has it? Certainly. The situation today is nowhere near as bad as it was during the bloody 1950s and ’60s. And that’s been true for a long time.

They go on to mischaracterize the Paula Deen flop, the Zimmerman trial and NYC police profiling. Why be constructive when you can be self-righteous instead, eh?

Wow. People don't like it when they lose their special privileges and are treated like everyone else.

I can’t think of a better example of chutzpah than a German publication lecturing America on racism.

I read the “Spiegel” regularly. All I can say is that Pitzke is an America hater and all of his columns reflect that. He constantly feeds the German psyche who eat his Anti- American writings up
He resides in the US and is a regular contributor.
