And I thought Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says very dumb things.
Chris Matthews should learn when to keep his mouth shut but his failure to do so does provide us with an opportunity to think about what lies in our own hearts and minds:
Chris Matthews I am sure wouldn't consider himself a racist and he certainly is on the right side of the civil rights debates but he does say things that suggest that there is at least a little speck of prejudiced thinking in all of us and it that which in the end leads me to support affirmative action programs more than any other reason. We aren't color blind. And we probably won't be a color blind society anytime soon.
