Bring back Jim Crow?

The new American right wing explanation for the financial collapse? Don't blame Wall Street greedheads or conservative Republican lawmakers intent on reversing all the regulatory protections brought in after the Great Depression to try to keep it from happening again.

No, the real problem is that thirty years ago Jimmy Carter forced banks to loan money to a bunch of shiftless darkies.

You only wish I was kidding.

The new right has claimed that it isn't racist, but this is racism, period. But not only does it show their Kluxer bigotry, it also shows their desperation. Scape goating Black People is a form of denial. They cannot admit that corporate capitalism brought this disaster on by all itself.
