Default Re: Black History Edition (John McWhorter & Glenn Loury)

Excerpt from Bill Clinton's Eulogy to Robert Byrd

CLINTON: There are a lot of people who wrote these eulogies for Senator Byrd in the newspapers, and I read a bunch of them, and they mentioned that he once had a fleeting association with the Klu Klux Klan and what does that mean. I'll tell you what it means. He was a country boy from the hills and the hollows of West Virginia. He was trying to get elected, and maybe he did something he shouldn't have done, and he spent the rest of his life making it up -- and that's what a good person does.

AUDIENCE: (applauding)

CLINTON: There are no perfect people! There are certainly no perfect politicians.

Maybe it's time to forgive Trent Lott!
