Was that really offensive? I doubt your indignation was any greater than mine upon reading QotBC.
I understand where you're coming from. When an author who's been dead for 60 years writes a story that you find racially offensive about black people, its an unforgivable sin which justifies changing his text to make it more 21st century PC. But when you say something racially offensive against whites, its perfectly okay because you're just evening out the playing field. Always the double standard. How about taking some personal responsibility for your own words?
What are you tallking about? I already acknowledged the statement was racial. I'm not blaming anybody. I just don't think my statement offended you as much as Howard's writing offended me. I am not blaming Howard. He's a damn good writer. Some of his writing fills me with outrage. Being upset about a work of art is as acceptable as loving it.
Save that double standard remark for someone who wants to play the "blame game" with you. Right now you're playing with yourself.
Finally, I don't deny Jews have been persecuted here and around the world. I'm fully aware of their plight in the South and how they joined with the Civil Rights Movement and actually seeded the NAACP. Whether we agree being Jewish is a race or religion is immaterial; I'm all for solidarity and am fully cognizant of their history, so we don't need to get into that discussion on this board; of all places.
