I listened to part of Obama’s speech on race this morning. The portion I heard was excellent, but it was odd hearing such a socially and intellectually charged speech in the America of today. Most voters could give a shit, as they’ve all been conditioned to be good consumerist drones and nothing more. There is no substantial or consequential intellectual ferment in this country. Tragically, Obama’s like Kennedy in a Best Buy store.
