Just to provide a little more context, Ta-Nehisi's tweet, above, was part of a series of tweets he posted on Sunday in response to Ron Paul's defense, earlier that same day, of Jim Crow and the apartheid south. (Yes, Ron Paul, the "freedom lover," was back on TV on Sunday advancing the cause of racial apartheid.)

Here are some of Ta-Nehisi's other tweets from the same day, on the same theme:

"All for ourselves, and nothing for other people, seems, in every age of the world, to have been the vile maxim of the masters of mankind." -- Adam Smith
