Michael B. Keegan: Dear Fellow White Men
Dear Fellow White Men:
C'mon guys, I keep thinking that you're going to get it. You can't still be holding on to that nostalgia for the 1950s when separate was equal, everyone was heterosexual and nice girls didn't work. I'm not talking to all of you. Just the ones in the party that runs the House of Representatives. Looking at the newly-announced Republican House committee chairs -- all of them very, very white men -- I'm wondering why this hasn't sunk in at all?
I hoped the sea of white faces at the Republican convention was something maybe out of your control.
