There's a difference between what Trent Lott said and what Harry Reid said

Harry ran afoul of some still-charged, awkward language around race. But he had no ill intent, and in no way was suggesting that "negros" should be treated any differently than the crackers in this country.

Trent, by contrast, embodied the very reason this language is still charged and awkward when he implied that we might be better off if we hadn't ended segregation.

(P.S., more posting today after I figure how to turn comments back on).
