"Why is OK to WISH this was done by one of your fellow citizens? What does it say about THIS country?"

Ok, I wish it was a Canadian. Or a Brit. Or a Frenchie.

I'm really not looking forward to another potential race war in this country. It's already bad enough as it is and we don't need some whackos starting a movement for Muslim or Korean internment camps like WWII.

I wish Australians would have public beheadings so some muslims aren't seen as so gruesome.

That's kinda crazy, no?

From that article:

"“White privilege is knowing that even if the bomber turns out to be white, no one will call for your group to be profiled as terrorists as a result, subjected to special screening or threatened with deportation,” writes author Tim Wise. “White privilege is knowing that if this bomber turns out to be white, the United States government will not bomb whatever corn field or mountain town or stale suburb from which said bomber came, just to ensure that others like him or her don’t get any ideas. And if he turns out to be a member of the Irish Republican Army we won’t bomb Dublin. And if he’s an Italian-American Catholic we won’t bomb the Vatican.”"

This is absolute truth. I hope that the bomber(s) is just some cornfed white dude from North Dakota trying to make some sort of political statement. Because if it's someone from the middle east or something, I really fear the backlash that "white america" is going to unleash upon some of our minority communities.

It'll be the Salem witch hunts all over again. And it will further demonstrate that no matter how much our laws may have progressed, the basic human instinct to hate based on skin color or religious preference or any other arbitrary characteristic is very much still alive and kicking in the human soul.

Hell, the backlash is already there actually. That's why I posted that link a few posts back. People already going off the rails about Muslims and Koreans. Pretty tragic, if you ask me.

"Willful ignorance?"

Admittedly I didn't read the whole post, I've heard it all before from him. But...

How cute, proving my point.

Water cooler discussions are all good and fine. I wouldn't come to any conclusions on who may be responsible until all the facts are in.

"And sorry dude but you are as pompous as they come."

Thanks for the observation; I'll keep working on it.
