The so-called "Redneck Row," an area of the Warwick High School parking lot where vehicles bearing Confederate flags used to park, has been declared history. (Source:  http://local.lancasteronline.com/4/210874)

Apologists continue to minimize the upswing, in many cases complaining that the “liberals” are going out of their way to support despots and dictators (referring to the campus visit of the President of Iran).  A newspaper reader from Ft. Worth, Texas asked the question:  “If the bigoted act of hanging a noose on a black professor's door is abhorrent - which I absolutely agree it is - why is inviting the bigoted Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to speak okay?”

As usual, comparing apples and oranges has been a major tool in minimizing the horrendous history and current practice of racism, bigotry and racial violence in the United States.  When civil rights activists point to the upswing in race-based terrorism in the US, supremacists fire back and claim whites are more at risk from blacks than the other way around. When women and “minorities” point out unequal opportunity in the workplace in the nation, supremacists and out of work white men say white men are under attack. 

The quest for equal opportunity in the United States has never been an easy road to travel.  Despite all of the civil rights laws, despite the martyrdom of countless civil rights activists and freedom fighters, America and her citizens have a lot of work to do.
