Tony Snow

American syndicated columnist with Creators Syndicate Inc.

[The civil rights movement] What began as a crusade for equal rights under the law has soured into a big-money quest to impose racial preferences. A movement that once united Americans of every class and color has turned into an agent of segregationism, race-baiting and political intrigue. What arose as a populist cause championed by ordinary citizens has degenerated into cults of personality backed by corporate America and shielded from scrutiny by a cadre of enforcers and intimidators. "We Shall Overcome" has given way to "Show me the money!"
