Madison remains peaceful (and inspired!) after white privilege conference
(page 1 of 2)
For real, I was exhausted Sunday after Saturday night’s Bo and Co.’s epic battle with the Arizona hoopsters. One point! I’d be a wreck. Wait a minute, I AM a wreck.
Charles Barkley is barely articulate but manages to say more than most commentators. He got it right by switching his allegiance to Bucky and drawing up a chalkboard at halftime, with the Badgers down, that read: “Kaminsky, Kaminsky, Kaminsky.” Profound Thought #2: Does Bo know just the right time to be assessed a technical foul?
The Sunday New York Times showed how the Badger basketball team spends its time between games: studying! Yes, Wisconsin produces true student-athletes.
Meanwhile (signaling abrupt change of subject) at The Capital Times, Patricia Schneider punched her first-class ticket on that high-speed, white liberal guilt train. She writes:
Despite some “noise” on white supremacist websites and controversy over public funds spent to register local public workers and students, the conference, which seeks to educate participants about the workings of institutional racism, got off to a smooth start.
Yes, Patricia Schneider, the white privilege conference went according to plan. No fire bombings. No burning crosses. No bullwhips cracking, thank you Neil Young. The Tea Party kept their guns in their holsters. The posse stayed home. The skinheads remained in their bunkers, the rednecks remained in their meth labs. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton canceled their flights to Dane County Regional Airport.
The conference went according to plan. Liberals got a spring tune-up of their guilty consciences. They’re feeling mighty pleased with themselves. The Grievance Industry collected another payday. A few months down the road, taxpayers will be stupefied by some race-based proposal for this set-aside or that special dispensation. Some want the Madison schools to apply a racial filter to student discipline. Next, will high school hockey be declared too white-centric?
