passing it on

Here's a great post posted from another post about the Tea Party.

I've taught Tim Wise before in my English 1 course, and it always goes over well because he's making points that no one else seems to say. I started to read a book on race and he begins the book by telling a story about a time when race came up at a party and how the issue ended up being dropped, the room went silent because of the fear that comes with talking about race. Tim Wise isn't afraid, and I like that.
