But, then again, those Duke players...

...were WHITE, and therefore more privileged than blacks in this country. Er, something. John Hawkins over at Right Wing News links to this column from the Seattle Times, about more left-wing, you're-white-so-you-need-to-feel-guilty, liberal hogwash.

He also points out that if Don Imus was black (or if he has spoken ill of white players), the whole thing wouldn't even be an issue. Understand: I DO NOT CONDONE what Imus said (in fact, I can't stand the guy). But, if liberals TRULY want FREE SPEECH, and NO constraints on the First Amendment, these are the kinds of things they are going to have to learn to live with. They want to be able to go around and say "offensive speech IS free speech", but then censor anybody who happens to offend them. Can't have it both ways, folks.

And, no, I don't feel guilty about being born white.
