Can we agree, however, that was a rather tame form of racism, compared to King Samir Shabazz saying,
I hate white people! All of them! Every last iota of a cracker, I hate him! ...You want freedom? You gonna have to kill some crackers! You gonna have to kill some of their babies!
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?
