Racism is alive and well around the world. I know that’s not a surprise to anyone, but the manifestation of the racism is horrific:
So one kills them after they’re born, and the other (who is supposed to be anti-abortion) thinks life would be better if we made sure they weren’t born? I’ve been so horrified by Bill Bennett’s remarks that I have found myself speechless. It is just unbelievable that anyone would say this in 2005, even as a hypothetical or whatever other excuse he uses.
I’m sure Bill Bennett will never make this connection, but the torture and murder of a black farm worker is the logical outcome of accepting comments like his and making them acceptable. I will defend forever his right to say what he thinks, but he can’t possibly expect civilized, thinking people to excuse his racist stupidity.
And I certainly hope that Mark Scott-Crossley enjoys his time in prison.
