The New York Times recently published an oped in which one of their columnists urged Obama to appoint Oprah to lead an official commission on race.
In his oped entitled “When Whites Just Don’t Get It, Part 5,” Nicholas Kristof argues that “racial bias remains deeply embedded in American life.”
To fix this “problem,” Kristoff believes the American government needs to form a fact-finding commission to investigate race relations that would function much like the 9/11 commission.
“[I]t should hold televised hearings and issue a report to help us understand ourselves,” Kristof writes. “Perhaps it could be led by the likes of Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush and Oprah Winfrey.”
This ridiculous oped is just the latest in a series on racism by the liberal newspaper. Their first was infamously entitled “Is everyone a little bit racist?”
