The unPopulist

I've just run across an interesting weblog: The unPopulist (excellent moniker). He's short on material, he rarely seems to post, even less so that I do, methinks. But it's nice to see youth, a goatee, and a clue all wrapped up in one package (how rare). And he doesn't have much to say, really, instead relying on pasting what others have said. That can be bad, but it also can be good when astute comparisons are made, such as this one he made between comments made by actor Morgan Freeman and Frederick Douglass.

Morgan Freeman:

Freeman notes there is no "white history month," and says the only way to get rid of racism is to "stop talking about it."

The actor says he believes the labels "black" and "white" are an obstacle to beating racism.

"I am going to stop calling you a white man and I'm going to ask you to stop calling me a black man," Freeman says.

I'll let you visit The unPopulist to find out what Frederick Douglass said, and I'll let you figure out on your own why it compares nicely with what Freeman said (the comparison isn't exactly direct). When I saw this, I wanted to comment on it myself. I was tempted to do so unilaterally, but...credit where credit is due.
