Charles M. Blow, Magnanimous in Victory

The Times's Charles M. Blow - he of the comically-haughty-African-potentate-like portrait - has joined the Great Triumphalist post-election wave. But he is so triumphant, he has no use for a Maureen Dowd-like reckoning. He knows who won and who lost, and knows the losers have no hope of ever regaining power. They are history - no need to take names and settle scores. Let them peacefully settle into their loser roles - get accustomed to their new irrelevancy. In considering the inevitable minority-status of whites, he asks:
when will public displays of white pride become culturally acceptable? Will they forever be freighted with the weight of history — tantamount to gloating about privilege? Or should all racial and cultural pride be viewed more or less the same?
I personally can't wait for that day. I'm sick of having to express my racial pride in code all the time - "Tax Cuts" this, "Personal Responsibility" that - first order of business: Re-establish the real Washington's Birthday holiday.

But Blow is no patsy - he's going to keep an eye on things, and make sure all sides - New Majority, New Minority - behave themselves.
The last thing we need is a racial and ethnic backlash in this country. Now is the time to move forward with sensitivity and respect and with a watchful eye on how we behave and what we expect as the traditional American majority becomes just another minority.
Understood, sir, understood.
