Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
Only a person obsessed with racial issues would worry about why there aren’t more people of color brewing craft beer.
I’m guessing the reason there are few Black beer crafters is the same reason there are so few Black start-up business owners: they don’t know anyone who ever did it so why would they consider it possible? Instead, they look at the other choices they see patterned for them by the adults around them and that’s what they take up. Entrepreneurship is a learned behavior but our First Black President’s administration is working vigorously to kill it.
Only a dog can hear a dog whistle. Only a racist sees racism everywhere.
Technically speaking, there are two ways to be a “post-racial” president; when there is no more racism, and when racism is the norm.
