By: Drew Webber Re: Letter Here's a letter I saw today in the local paper's letter to the editor column. I thought ya'll would like to see it... Right-to-Lifers Pampered I have lived long enough to know that if Native American, African American or other activists of color repeatedly, all across the United States, month after month, were to bomb buildings, block public access, harrassingly shout at law-abiding citizens going about their business, and incite to riot or murder, they would be demonized, tear-gased, billy-clubbed, shot and killed by law enforcement officials, their leaders "assassinated", and many others imprisoned for very very long sentences. However, if those same activists are white, middle-class fundamentalists doing all of the above plus murder of health care professionals and other workers, they are called Right-to-Lifers and their leaders are politely interviewed by Tom Brokaw. Question: When do we start treating white people illegally protesting a law in same way we would treat people of color doing the same thing? Or vice versa, if you please!
