This Idea Could Catch on

We read:

"Whoopi Goldberg decided to defend Michael Vick for his dogfighting. And what logic did she use to defend him? "There are certain things that are indicative to certain parts of our country [the South]...this is part of his cultural upbringing."


The KKK is not such a distant memory. A "Kleagle" still sits in the U.S. Senate in fact. So I guess that a lot of Southerners could reasonably denigrate (pun) blacks and justify their deeds as "part of their cultural upbringing".

And from the Global Warming and Iraq debates we know what important intellectuals Hollywood actors are.
