So we can disregard say... evolution, if Charles Darwin was a raging racist?

That doesn't make sense since racism doesn't relate to evolution in the way that slavery relates to freedom.

I guess the point that a lot of values (you like talkin' about them, right?) from Franklin's time are completely irrelevant today was missed? C'mon Indy. You're smarter than that.

Last night was the White House Correspondents' Dinner. I was looking at articles about it and I felt uneasy seeing so many celebrities at this event. Even E! has a red carpet show for this. It's become another Hollywood social event.

I know celebrities attending this is nothing new but seems to have grown more in recent years and I just don't like it. I also felt uneasy seeing non-American celebrities like Natalie Dormer, Psy and Michelle Dockery at this. Isn't the WHCD for American politics and the journalists who cover them? Where does Hollywood fit into this? It's become a joke and I feel a little embarrassed. No, I'm not blaming Obama because celebrities at the WHCD is nothing new. But they've overwhelmed this event and it's a ridiculous.

Hi everybody! I do like Barack Obama! He seems like such a sweet man and a good father!

I was at a restaurant in New York City in 2008 when he was elected, and Stevie Wonder was there, and Stevie he got up and made such a compelling speech about how important it is to have a figure like Mr. Obama in our country. Love you guys! Drink Diet Coke!
