Jon Stewart said it far better last night than I can. The mass murder in Charleston will prove to be one more horrific event in our country’s history that captures our attention for a moment and then we will choose to ignore. Like so many other tragedies we have witnessed, this is not an isolated event disconnected from our history. This is our history, our ugly racial history and our history on the mis-appropriation of the Second Amendment, which continues to this very day. We need to own that history and not ignore it. But I know we won’t. It’s a very sad day for America for so many reasons.
