    It is black leaders who are (still) called upon to issue condemnations anytime any black person or organization does something stupid, violent or criminal.  People don't make those kind of demands of white, Jewish or Christian leaders when a white, Jew or Christian does something stupid, violent or criminal.

    As a thought experiment, imagine if a Muslim and/or Arab man shot up a school yard or post office after losing his job.  You can be goddamn sure his religion and ethnicity would be mentioned along the lines of "Muslim Shoots Up School Yard."

    But if the same act was done by a Christian, there's no way the headline would be, "Christian Shoots Up School Yard."

    Imagine if the old man who drove his car at high speed into the Santa Monica Farmer's Market had been an Arab.  Do you think he would've been out on bail in a matter of hours?

    This aggression will not stand, man.
