I've heard that line from so many black friends and relatives over the years that it's become sort of a running joke. A white governor accused of wearing blackface in a yearbook. We forgive. A white supremacist murders nine black worshippers in a church. We forgive.
But when I watched Sen. Kamala Harris' exquisite takedown of Joe Biden this week over his past opposition to busing, an odd thought occurred to me: Maybe we are getting tired of being such a "forgiving people," and that might not be so bad.
