Almost certainly not what Dr. Carson is telling Reince Priebus:
“It was easy for white people to approve of 12 Years A Slave — that was all so long ago, and it involved people you couldn’t possibly have met or known. Selma just didn’t have that gauzy antebellum scrim to protect your tender feelings.”
(Context: David Sims, in the Atlantic, “The Oscars Haven’t Been This White in 19 Years“)
Apart from bitching about the Oscar nominations, or the RNC meeting, what’s on the agenda for the evening?
