Fear of a Black Planet: Pat Buchanan Says Diversity Isn’t American

Daniella Leger discusses Pat Buchanan's view that diversity isn't American.

Oh Pat!

Pat Buchanan is the crazy uncle many of us have in our families. You know him: He talks a little too loudly, holds views that are embarrassing, and asks you uncomfortable questions about your dating life. The difference between Buchanan and your uncle is that Buchanan has a national platform upon which to disseminate his latest views (unless of course your uncle IS Buchanan, in which case … sorry).

I’m sure many of you have heard about Buchanan’s latest book on the decline of America, the awesomely titled Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025? In it, he talks about the death of Christian America and the crisis of Catholicism.

But the real heart of the book is the discussion on race.
