The race to politicize

It looks like the Confederate flag - that symbol of racism, slavery, and treason - might come down from flying over the South Carolina capitol (or it might not). As Jon Stewart says, that's the very least they could do.

But I wouldn't expect any more than that. Racism is not just alive and well, it's used for political advantage by the Republican Party. As long as that's successful, they'll continue using it.
