Jesse Jackson once said:
“There is nothing more painful for me at this stage in my life than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery—then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved.”Ali Eteraz, the reform-minded Muslim blogger, seems to have known how he felt. His running post a few evenings ago was candid:
At least 20 people have been killed by two people on a homicidal rampage at Virginia Tech. One person is in custody; another sought. Story will be updated.
I will not lie. My first thought is: what if these fuckers are Muslim?
