America: kinda racist

A New Jersey Hasidic rabbi was physically assaulted on the street by a man yelling, "Jew, Jew." This is not being looked into as a hate crime. A black professor at Teachers' College finds a noose on her door. This is being prosecuted as a hate crime. Any ideas?

Tonight's episode of 'Gossip Girl' began with a dream sequence in which the black and Asian 'characters' (they are near-silent sidekicks) are literally the servants of one of the two WASPtastic protagonists. The moral of this scene is... that Blair, the brunette, feels that the blonde, Serena, has taken the spotlight that is rightfully hers.

Welcome to the post-PC era! See, isn't it better this way?
