So they are calling the Tennessee Republicans racists because they expelled from the state legislature two Democrats that led a bull-horn armed insurrection. Of course, they are, because both Rep. Justin Jones and Rep. Justin Pearson are Black. It’s just like the Redeemers after the Civil War, writes Jemar Tisby.
Here’s my advice to the Tennessee Republicans: Don’t whiff on this. Don’t apologize. You must say something like: “Of course it was racist. Any time you make a Black person in America accountable for their actions, experts agree, that’s racist. But we believe in democracy, not race.”

Really, it’s about 50 years too late to start the pushback on the race card. But we might as well start now, rather than later.
