A Final Fourth of July Story

    The impact of the black American presence on America has been tremendous and historically conditioned; but this fact generally the Amrican psyche has been loath to admit but families like Dr. Cousins’ are not unique in our inter-group cultural fusion – Via Meadia renders an important service on Nation’s birthday (the American condition and identity). Thanks….

    Hear, hear. Thank you for the splendid tiding.

    The ideals of 1776 are still vital, and still working to complete themselves in our society. Good for Dr. Cousins, and good for the DAR.

    It’s a great relief to see that those wounds are healing over… charges of “racism” and “playing the race card” have been the ultimate in ad hominem attacks for a generation.

    Now we can only hope that the Left’s disingenuous, false, and absurd argument that “You’re racist, therefore your claim that 2+2=4 is invalid” against the TEA Party and other fiscal conservatives fall on deaf ears as well.

    Good news indeed.

    The Daughters of the American Revolution have come a long way since 1939, when the DAR denied african-american singer Marian Anderson the ability to perform an Easter concert at DAR-owned Constitution Hall on account of her race.
