Ploni Almoni compliments me on my article Letter to a Leftist Friend.
By the way, good letter by Robert. I wonder, what proportion of self-identified American leftists feel this way? I’d guess it’s less than 1 in 10.
It’s got to be less than 10%. This is unfortunate, because I feel that the Left fight against racism is not that important anymore.
I mean, come on. We’ve named all these streets after MLK and Cesar Chavez, we made MLK Day a holiday, on and on. But helping Hispanics and especially Blacks out economically is worth more than 1000 MLK Boulevards or 10,000 shrill antiracist articles or speeches.
Think about it. Economics is what really matters to Hispanics and especially Blacks. Racism I think is a much lesser concern.
