bennett, miller, and their detractors

ok, so nobody cares about this anymore, including myself. i will, however, provide a brief summation for the sake of closure.

the villification of bennett was unfounded. while the comments he made were racially insensitive (perceived as such, while not intended to be), he did nothing to justify the hate-filled charges thrown at him. he was slain on the altar of p.c. with all the real racists out there, i think this outrage was clearly aimed at conservative talk radio. and, as a bonus, bennett served under reagan.

something else that i thought was strange was the protest that accompanied the posting of flyers. it seemed mainly to be leveled against self-segregation. what does that have to do with bennett's comments? (especially since this protest was intended as a matter of self-reflection, in addition to the public aspect?)

ok, enough polemics. i'll try to leave this stuff for popular, political bloggers.
