This CBS3.Com story describing how Asian kids are the subject of race-based attacks at South Philadelphia High School — the alma mater of Mario Lanza, Al Martino and Larry Fine — is going around the word via a link to the Drudge Report and what is glaringly unclear in it?
No where does is it spelled out who exactly are the racist anti-Asian attackers.
The story quotes one unidentified student as saying “It was blacks and whites and they saw the Asians at the school, it all started with an argument.”
Well, that certainly explains it.
South Philly High, for the record, is 66 percent black, 19 percent Asian, 10 percent white and 5 percent Hispanic.
One wouldn’t think that rednecks in pickups are behind this.
And today’s Philadelphia Inquirer confirms this in a long story regarding the matter on the front of today’s B section in which, in the seventh paragraph, they courageously, for them I suppose, mention “fights” between African American and Asian students.
Attacks, assaults, racist bullying or ethnic intimidation were not used to describe the turmoil but “fights”.
Martin Luther King Jr. had a wonderful dream of a color-blind society and in order for this dream to come true black racism and black ethnic intimidation is going to have to be just as intolerable and treated just as harshly as that of whites.
This means it must be condemned without any qualification or hesitation by church leaders, by politicians, by the dinosaur media and by the blacks themselves, most of whom are rather decent people.
