I didn't realize there had been that many incidents lately. I had read about the statue with noose and flag. That single incident would be easy to write off as just kids - kids who need to receive a lesson, no doubt -

but when this incident arrives in context with the others it represents an intolerable pattern of behavior.

I saw that the other day. It is funny - I mean, sort of. IT is funny. Until the practical reality sets in.

Once upon a time, they were vilified and ignored.

Now they are given a soap box.

yeah-ya

the only time a man like Frank Taaffe is validated is when a White Man shoots him.

In the gut. Twice.

Mark Potok, head of SPLC, recently stated on CNN that racism is on the rise. He says there has been a significant increase in racist incidents and raciest feelings among whites in the past few years. Potok thinks half of all whites now have anti-black feelings. His statements were challenged by another guest during the interview, but I believe Potok is correct.

The question is what is driving whites to these anti-black feelings, and what can be done about it?

because racism is a non-economic issue

either party may pick up a banner for non-corporate issues

Yea, after looking at it, it does look like a right wing site. Sorry about that. I should have got the link from Youtube. It does seem odd a interview with Potok would be on a conservative web site.
