WHO SHOULD SPEAK OUT AGAINST TERRORISM? | 2001-11-03

A popular line right now is that, while it is true that many Moslems do not support terrorism, Moslem leaders should denounce the killing of Americans more loudly.

Does this mean other groups might be asked to denounce THEIR terrorists?

For every white who does violence to a black person, twenty black people do violence to whites. But the only thing black leaders ever denounce is whites who are especially afraid of blacks. Being especially afraid of blacks is called "profiling" and Hate.

Six thousand Americans were killed by terrorists. Nonwhites have killed a lot more whites than that in the last decade.

It will be a long cold day in Hell before blacks denounce blacks who kill whites. Before respectable conservatives or liberals ask them to, there will a blizzard Down There.
