I think there is growing concern right now about a wave of reverse racism and racial intimidation in this country. People want racial harmony, but what we’re seeing is a new kind of racial bias emerging. Instead of becoming less color conscious, we are now completely obsessed with race. I was reminded of this fact as I watched news reports of this incident wedged in between CNN’s multiple airings of “Black in America”. This, on the heels of the media’s 24/7 canonization of Michael Jackson. In Los Angeles, white parents can’t even get their children into charter schools because African-American applicants are being awarded extra “points” just for being black. We need to find a way to be honest enough with each other that we can avoid these kinds of inequalities which appear to be de facto retribution. All that will do is create even more racial division in our society.

Oh right on target, Mr. Fish! Can’t remove the First Amendment from the Constitution? Make “Hate Speech” a crime anyway!
