OPINION: The GOP's new best friend

I’m so tired of the Critical Race Theory debate. I’ve been hearing a version of it all my life. It’s just more dog whistles designed to scare and  motivate the GOP’s White, predominantly rural base. In the past, Black men were going to take White women. Then, they were going to take White neighborhoods. Jesse Helms said they were going to take White jobs. Now, they are going to take White history. It’s just exhausting listening to all the hyperbole and self-serving, self-righteousness coming from Republican leaders in need of a racial wedge issue.

Mark Robinson was rewarded by conservative voters for having the courage to take a deep dive into the culture wars. Most years, Republicans barely got their toes wet.
