When I learned that the man accused of shooting innocent bystanders Sunday at a Jewish community center and Jewish retirement home in Overland Park, Kan., was a former Klansman named Glenn Miller, I shuddered. Thirty-three years ago, when I was an undergraduate at Duke University, I read a small item in the Raleigh News & Observer that mentioned Miller, then the grand dragon of the Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. Miller, it turns out, ran a paramilitary training camp in rural North Carolina.

I interviewed the accused Kansas gunman 33 years ago. He was hateful then, too. (via washingtonpost)

At the time, I didn’t think these sorts of things still happened in the United States. I was wrong.”

You know that we can hear you, right?
Daily Show correspondent Aasif Mandvi • Speaking, visibly shocked, to Buncombe County, North Carolina GOP party official Don Yelton, who said a number of extremely racist things during an interview with Mandvi about the state’s voter ID law, as well as this shocking admission of the law’s intention: “The law is going to kick the Democrats In the butt.” He was forced to resign today, because, seriously, what the hell?

Are we reaching a breakthrough point on the Washington Redskins’ name? The NFL has agreed to meet with a group, led by Oneida Indian Nation, that has launched a campaign against the team’s name—a campaign that got some support from President Barack Obama last week, when the president suggested that if he led the team, he would change its name. “It is hypocritical to say you’re America’s pastime but not represent the ideals of America,” said Ray Halbritter, the Oneida Indian Nation’s national representative, about the longstanding team name.
Sounds like progress. Then again, The New York Post still writes crap like this, so don’t get your hopes up.
