None of this looks good. Nothing good can come of this. Unless you are one who cants bad publicity as good publicity. I call it attention whoring.

precicely. this whole theme of racism is political attention-getting.

we all know how to get along. we don`t need media whores stirring the pot.

we just have to own our feelings.

We do indeed know how to get along and the media likes to drive a wedge into that because it's drama and ratings or readership or whatever. Is their racial discord? Of course but this does not help in evolving us away from that discord.

Were they trying to provoke something "symbolic?" I highly doubt it.

I'm disappointed that so called high minds could only come up with this. These are the alleged trend setters. Utterly useless and pig headed.

they are trend-setters. and the trend is anything that will sell thier product.

we were made to look at something that we wouldn`t otherwise give the time of day.
