NAACP changes plans for dinner
First the gutless Urban League, now a gutless NAACP. The picture of William Kirkland, a boycott support and bigot, that accompanies this story illustrates two realities of this situation. One is that these protesters are literally now the "Clown Posse", as Peter Bronson called them. Two is the continued double standard in the media regarding black racism and bigoted acts. Wearing "black face" by a white person who is protesting would be considered a racist act. William Kirkland wears "white face" and gets his picture in the paper with no indication that what he did can be considered a racist act. I don't know which reality is more poignant, but both points are clearer than settled Cincinnati tap water.
