Ah, yes... the compassionate, intellectual left... once again, in the person of Mr. Anonymous... responds with the usual charges of... surprise, surprise... racism.

This gentleman was also kind enough to send me a dozen variants of his argument above... including pictures of 90 year-old lynchings in the deep south. I did ask him if he had sent any of these thoughtful comments & pictures to the various media who also covered this terrible event... but have yet to receive an answer.

I guess we're supposed to just pretend this isn't actually a problem. Nobody's disputing that shooting kids in the face is a bad thing... it's just that you aren't supposed to talk about it.

Yes, Nonny... I violated "the code".

Maybe you could do us all a favour... and take your nasty, little race-baiting mouth down the road. I bet they just love you over at Liblogs.

LAST WORD: Forget anonymous trolls...

...ask an actual African-American...
The terrible struggle that made me an American out of a potential slave said "On the line!" The Reconstruction said "Get set!" and the generation before said "Go!"

I am off to a flying start and I must not halt in the stretch to look behind and weep. Slavery is the price I paid for civilization, and the choice was not with me.

It is a bully adventure and worth all that I have paid through my ancestors for it.
What do you think Zora Neale Hurston would have to say about Sheronnie Thomas?
