    because he was being sent to Cuba and people in the US have an irrational hatred of Cuba.  Never mind that he was going to live with his father, as he should.  Can't let those brown folks govern their selves.  And white America didn't much care about Rodney King until there were giant race riots.  I'm sure you remember those.

    And it seems more than just coincidence that a bunch of rich white children getting killed in a suburb of NYC is the watershed moment.  It's just a coincident that watershed moments happen to always affect white people more than other races.  Just a coincidence.

    The revolution will not be televised. But it will be blogged, a lot. Probably more so than is necessary.
