Re: “No escape

It's true - no escaping the questions that reporters must be asked when the truth is finally shoved down their throat and they still can't swallow it because it doesn't support the prejudice they have built. Questions like... 1) Was Susan Smith just as much a victim or was she the wrong color to gain your sympathies when she falsely accused black man of the crime she committed herself? 2) Where's the admission of your own fault in lynching people based on their skin color and economic class? 3) Where's the admission of that bias itself? Had these frat boys been black, this would not have been your story except to denounce anyone that didn't dismiss the case after the DNA evidence just didn't show. 4) Why is it that life choices of anyone individual are the responsibililty of anyone else? The woman in this case had no less opportunity for education than most people do. Few of us are in economic upper classes. We are still personally responsible for our own choices, even if they are bad ones or ones we regret. 5) Why is it socially okay to ruin the life of a rich white kid but dispicable to even mention the person's color if they aren't white? Having wealthy parents doesn't make someone a scoundrel and having poor ones doesn't absolve anyone of personal responsibility. Being white doesn't make you better or worse, and being black doesn't mean you can't make good choices. Please do us all a favor and grow up and quit being a bigot.
