He basically sentenced himself to death by writing a book.
There are members of the extreme left that think the term accident 'black spot' is derogatory to black people.
All this does, is allow those on the conservative right to point at these nut-jobs and condemn the whole liberal movement as head-in-the-clouds nonsense and to keeping on parading their 'average joe' racism as something that is acceptable.
Regardless of political ties...it is almost ALWAYS the uneducated
, who are racist. For instance, I think you will find more racists among redneck liberal Dixie-crats than among religious conservatives.
