First Things: Glenn C. Loury on "The Case for Black Patriotism." An excerpt:
"Connections among various groups in America could be stronger if we focused more on the things we have in common than on the things that divide us. Those who make their living by focusing on our differences believe there is something fundamentally wrong with America. They're wrong. We should resist their divisive rhetoric. It is easy to overstate the racial problems facing our country, and to understate what we've achieved."
