I can't defend what the guy in the CBS News video did: held a plush monkey with an Obama sticker on it, then took off the sticker when he saw the camera, because he knew he was doing something wrong.
Can we agree, however, that was a rather tame form of racism, compared to King Samir Shabazz saying,
King Samir Shabazz "You Want Freedom? Kill Some Crackers!" - YouTube
And unlike the guy in the CBS News video, Shabazz is no coward. He had no shame about these sentiments... he shouted them into a public address system, knowing that there was a camera on him the entire time.
CBS News had absolutely no coverage of Shabazz.
Could we please all agree to condemn all forms of racism... not just when it comes from white people?
