First, how does one write an article on racism today without clearly pointing out the race baiting coming from the White House with regard to the Arizona immigration law. That law prohibits racial profiling and only allows the Arizona police to ask for immigration papers if someone has otherwise been validly stopped. That means no requests for papers unless someone is getting a ticket (Imagine the disgrace of being asked for your drivers license when stopped for speeding -- racism for sure); stopped in the commission of a crime or otherwise arrested. Remember, the feds can ask anyone at anytime for their picture ID while the state police require a valid stop. No one claims the federal law is racist. Nevertheless, Obama and the Obamacrats tell all the gullible people that Arizona's law is racist. That is race baiting pure and simple. they are trying to stir up hatred in the Hispanic community. It sucks!
Second, how does one write a story on supposed racism in Greenwich, but fail to cover a story like Helen Thomas. The Greenwich time is one of the 15 Hearst Newspapers. Helen Thomas is the Hearst correspondent in Washington. So Helen Thomas is the Washington correspondent for the Greenwich Time. Thomas a few days ago advocated expelling all Jews from Israel and sending them back to Germany and Poland where they belong. (Of course, very few of the Jews in Israel came from Germany or Poland, but that does not matter to Thomas. She is another one of the "don't bother me with facts" crowd.) Thomas is just another anti-semite. But she is the Washington correspondent of a paper that is lecturing on racism but not mentioning old Helen.
Can it really be that the Greenwich Time is unaware of Helen's statements of the race baiting emanating from Obama's administration? No. The truth is that Obama's race baiting and Thomas' anti semitism are embarassing and inconvenient for the Time. They do not fit into the narrative of right wing racism that the newspaper wants to portray. So, since these are inconvenient truths (sorry Al), they get ignored.
