SEE Bartholomew’s comments in the most recent entry about race and the election. He responds to Jesse Powell’s claim that race is not as significant a factor as many have suggested. Bartholomew writes:
Mr. Powell’s argument amounts to simply one more Non-racial Theory of Racial Voting Patterns. How many times are people like Mr. Powell and, apparently the strategists at the Republican Party, going to commit the same logical fallacy? And how many more lifelong Democratic voters are we going to import before they stop? There is certainly a problem with “conflict among conservatives,” namely with those conservatives who refuse to acknowledge racial realities.
