Tonight’s question, greetings, and banter here. (More)

Today President Obama spoke movingly on last night’s mass murder in Charleston’s “Mother Emanuel” church, and called for renewed efforts to curb gun violence. Also, Hillary Clinton asked the nation to consider “hard truths about race, violence, guns and division.” The murderer was captured this morning at a traffic stop in North Carolina. He wore flags of racist former African states in a Facebook photo, and his chilling words during the attack left no doubt of his white supremacist motives. Is it time to stop pretending white racial violence is “history?”
