Charles M. Blow of The New York Times: Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson and His Erroneous Views on Southern Race Relations

Charles Blow of The New York Times: Phil Robertson's Problematic Views on Southern Race Relations

"Robertson’s comments conjure the insidious mythology of historical Southern fiction, that of contented slave and benevolent master, of the oppressed and the oppressors gleefully abiding the oppression, happily accepting their wildly variant social stations. This mythology posits that there were two waves of ruination for Southern culture, the Civil War and the civil rights movement, that made blacks get upset and things go downhill."
---Charles M. Blow, The New York Times
