No American concedes that he’s racist—not one. Yet millions of Americans swear that America is a racist nation! The truth is, America is not a racist nation, but millions of Americans are. Aaron McGruder—I don’t know if he’s a racist, but I do know he sounds like one, especially when quoted in the July 23 edition of the Washington City Paper (“Comic Belief”) saying that he takes black criticism seriously no matter how off-the-wall it is but that what whites think should be disregarded.
That certainly looks like classic racial discrimination, and surely Mr. McGruder would think a journalist was racist if he said that what blacks think should be disregarded, especially if a black by the name of Aaron McGruder was doing the thinking.
This is what I think: America doesn’t need another racist journalist.
