The Daily Kos has the story ‘I’m white, call them twice bitch’. I am not sure you can imagine what this story is from its headline. But the story and the thoughts of the commenters are a sad commentary on
Just another day in post-racial America.
Something else about the story occurred to me. If you were white and the recipient of this tirade, would you have thought twice about calling the police? Has it ever occurred to you wonder what it says about what non-white people in this country have to live with? Think about the impression some white people have of what the police will let them get away with. Think about the evidence you have heard recently that gives credence to that impression.
