The best part of the Obama years has been all the racial healing.

Historically, this is how empires imposed by force - not democracies of a sovereign people - behave:

//Is it any wonder that voters are angry and restive? The presidential campaign comes not a minute too soon, and not just because it heralds the end of the Obama experiment, but because it can bring a cleansing debate on an existential issue that, surprisingly, gets little attention.

In a new report, I argue that to embark on this debate, we need to understand how America did things in the past — how it assimilated multiple ethnicities into a single people who brimmed with an exuberance of patriotic spirit as they threw themselves into their shared destiny.

We must also understand what we are doing now by officially dividing the nation into five different groups — Whites, African Americans, Native Americans, Hispanics, and Asians — and encouraging their permanence with benefits such as racial preferences.

That the first is the “dominant group” of Critical Theory, and the last four are the “subordinate groups,” as can be seen in the perfectly Orwellian “all animals are created equal, but some are more equal than others” language of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. It helpfully explains that:

Every U.S. citizen is a member of some protected class, and is entitled to the benefits of EEO law. However, the EEO laws were passed to correct a history of unfa­vorable treatment of women and minority group members.//
