    I think there's no question about what message he wanted to send.  And certainly it was empowering from his perspective.  The question is whether the message actually was sent - and given my reaction IMO it's not as clear as I wished rules could have permitted him to be.

    At this point, I just want America to admit that it still doesn't want its Black citizens to live in any state other than terror, subservience and inferiority, under pain of death. I can handle American racism, but I can't handle American denial.
