Quote of the day:

“Finally, it must be said–in the broader context–that Juan Williams isn’t simply Shirley Sherrod. Juan Williams’ father, to my knowledge, was not murdered by anti-American Islamic radicals. Juan Williams did not grow up watching his mother face down the Al’Qaeda on the front porch. Juan Williams did not have his entire life absorbed by the fight against Islamic terror. Juan Williams makes a career amicably discussing bigotry with bigots. Shirley Sherrod made a career, and a life, of confronting bigotry–perhaps most admirably, her own.”

– Ta-Nehisi Coates
