...say that again?

Unless I'm reading this incorrectly, alleged black person Thomas Sowell has just written a column in which he claims that segregated seating on public transportation (of the sort against which the late, great Rosa Parks made a rather noteworthy defiance) was not the fault of racism, but rather of judicial activism and government meddling in free enterprise. If only, Sowell seems to suggest, the free market had been given a free reign, the South would have been a paradise for blacks, because businesses have no choice but to service their clientele. So if those nosey bureaucrats had just minded their own business, blacks would have been welcome to sit anywhere on buses, just as they were free to sit anywhere in restaurants, shop at any store they liked, and play major-league baseball.

You know, we really have come a long way in race relations in this country when a guy can Tom like this and not get his ass kicked.
