I don't expect to win any popularity contests with this one but, please, hear me out. We are all very upset about the racial violence taking place in this country but I think it is important not to misdirect that anger and lose focus on the bigger picture.

Governor Nikki Haley's (R-SC) decision to seek removal of the confederate flag from government property is good news, but she compromised her moral leadership by qualifying words about "heritage," code word for a society explicitly and deliberately structured on racial superiority.

The War of 1812 didn't gain America much, as a country. It didn't address the complaints that led the Americans to declare war in the first place. We didn't conquer Canada. But we did gain a certain amount of what can be called our "national identity" after the war. Right at the heart of this was a new patriotic (and popular) song.

The racial anger isn't just palpable any more; it's manifest. And again, Texas is getting attention for its ignorance instead of its greatness. In an upscale neighborhood of Northwest Austin, a Republican voter has hung an empty chair in effigy from a tree in his front yard.
