From ace correspondent Mark Breton:
New York State settled a discrimination lawsuit brought by the fired Senate photographer, Joseph Maioriello, who was white. He was evidently fired so that the Senate could hire a gentleman who was black. The case was described as "reverse discrimination."
Let me tell you why I hate that phrase. It presupposes that all discrimination will be perpetrated against minorities. So when those in the minority discriminate against white people, it is the exception and needs its own terminology. That is intellectually dishonest.
There are those who say acts of racism and discrimination cannot be done by a minority figure because they are not in power. That is a lie, and an evil one at that. Racial discrimination can be done by anyone, at anytime. Think of what MLK said: "...by the content of their character."
There are a whole big bunch of us that are sick and tired of the lines being drawn. Right is right and wrong is wrong according to the law, and we are all promised equal protection under the law by the Constitution. The Constitution fully supports the rights of people to hate each other. Jesus told us to love each other, but Uncle Sam said we can think what we want; we just don't get to encroach on the rights of others as a result.
