He may look black...

...but Bob Young's politics don't, so the Detroit Free Press endorses a white liberal for the Michigan Supreme court. The Blog Prof has the details.

There is probably nothing that so quickly gives the lie to the modern liberal's ostensible concern for civil rights and diversity than the speed with which he will attack a representative of a racial or ethnic minority for thinking outside the left-wing box.

Diversity, in leftese, means Blacks and whites and Hispanics and Asians and Jews and women marching in ideological lockstep. Under the tutelage and direction of the white male elite.

It does not mean a variety of opinion and free discussion. And that goes double for any minorities or women who get uppity and stray from the reservation.

In fact, Juan Williams didn't even stray - his crime was merely appearing on Fox to debate. His sin was to legitimize opposing points of view by addressing them. I suspect that he has not yet figured that out, as so far most discussion is centered on the entirely unremarkable and widespread sentiment he confessed to, which is of course a red herring.

Steve, I don't think it's the domination by the White male elite. The agenda is the conversion of the nation (and the world) into a Progressive utopia. They use the Saul Alinsky methods to attempt to achieve this. Anyone who furthers the agenda is fine.

David Horowitz's booklet "Obama's Rules For Revolution" is a wonderful source. It is fifty-one pages. The Freedom Foundation sells it for $3.00
