The Pinocchio Theory

You know who you are. Don't you? Sure you do. You're one of those people who, back in November 2008, voted for a candidate for President for no other reason than he is black. Yes, you did. You know this to be true. In your heart, you know it. And yet, here we are, four …

"America is inherently unfair. It's supposed to be. America is inherently unequal. It's supposed to be. Your 'equal opportunity' came to fruition on the day God allowed you to be born.
