Much too easy.
Leave it to a Townhall.com columnist to try to use Michael Richards' racist outburst as the basis for a canned, scatter-brained argument about "race consciousness."
According to Star Parker, Richards' offensive remarks can be traced to the fact that many businesses and government agencies keep track "of how many blacks it has on board. Every major corporation has a diversity officer to make sure the colors of the beans are in order.
"... We have institutionalized race consciousness to the very core of our society, so it should be evident why it persists."
So there you have it. If corporations such as GE and Daimer-Chrysler didn't care how many minorities were on their boards of directors, Richards probably wouldn't have been so conscious of race, lost it on stage and behaved like such a dick.
Thanks for clarifying, Ms. Parker. It all makes sense to me now.
