Another Quick Correction


In my piece yesterday on "The Race War That Isn't," I linked to a "fascinating article" in Esquire about an anti-Obama radical, then, after quoting the radical's anti-Confederacy sentiments, I wrote:

One reason that the rising-tide-of-violent-racial-resentment narrative remains unconvincing is that, as in the Esquire piece, the proponents of the theory so rarely find any actual racists to pin it on.

The assertion that the Esquire piece was promoting the "racial-resentment" narrative was inaccurate, and I have corrected the article accordingly. Thanks to Esquire editor Tim Heffernan for the heads-up.
