Michael Tomasky -- How the Right Is Still Racist

By Sheila Samples

It's all very touching now that Sean Hannity wants the Republicans to embrace immigration reform, isn't it? And Charles Krauthammer, bless him, calling on the GOP to repeat the word "amnesty" as if it were some tantric mantra of salvation. But if conservatives want people of color to take them seriously, they'd better start taking people of color seriously, and that's something that will take a very, very, very long time.
