When one hears former president Jimmy Carter speak nowadays, it’s easy to come to the conclusion that he just wants attention. At least his memory’s good, though. He remembers the well that has given his party so much water: The Racism Well.
Mr. President. That well is dry and most people don’t care. You and your party have tried your agendas, winning your positions as a part of public backlash against unpopular actions of the previous Republican administration. But Americans tire of your actions quickly, and soon resent your attempts to tell them what victims they are. No, Mr. Carter. Americans are stronger than you think. And us and Canada are the least racist countries I know of.
Say something nice, Mr. President, about you’re country. While you’re at it, remind President Obama to do the same.
