Therapeutic Alienation

This is a really interesting article.  I’ve been interested for a long time in how otherwise “normal”, cool headed, black friends of mine could believe some of the conspiracy theories that are out there.  I don’t know if this is the explanation or not, but I think it is still a fascinating perspective.  I find it sad that the kind of stuff that Jeremiah Wright preaches keeps stoking the flames of a problem that has actually gotten better in the last 40 years.  Are we all the way there?  No, of course not.  I do think that we would be a lot further along if it weren’t for this kind of hateful rhetoric.
