Now THERE'S a good idea!

How's this for smoothing over racial tensions?
RALEIGH — A Raleigh activist and bookstore owner told a panel at Howard University Law School on Oct. 14 that the solution to many of the problems faced by black people is the extermination of “white people off the face of the planet.” Dr. Kamau Kambon, who taught Africana Studies 241 in the Spring 2005 semester at North Carolina State University, also said this needs to be done “because white people want to kill us.”Addressing a panel on “Hurricane Katrina Media Coverage,” broadcast in its entirety on C-SPAN, Kambon told the audience that white people “have retina scans, they have what they call racial profiling, DNA banks, and they’re monitoring our people to try to prevent the one person from coming up with the one idea. And the one idea is, how we are going to exterminate white people because that in my estimation is the only conclusion I have come to. We have to exterminate white people off the face of the planet to solve this problem.”

Wow, I'm scared.

Seriously, how has America come to the place where white people(unless they are Democratic former KKK members) would sooner utter 'Seig Heil' than the "n-word", even when quoting someone and are considered racist unless they use a term coined by Jesse Jackson and support Affirmative Discrimination, but black people can call for this?
Not that I'm advocating racism, please don't get me wrong. I don't favor racism in any form. Which is what the problem is here. Bill Bennet can get called every name in the book for a tasteless, yet hypothetical, comment, but the leader of an(albiet rather kooky) National party can go on national TV and call Sean Hannity a 'racist devil', call for seperatism and label the Red Cross "a failure" because they're "too white" and I never hear another word about it?

Doesn't seem "fair" to me.
