The Times editorial scribe is from Chicago and very sensitive to racism. So am I. I abhor it.
However in this op/ed, Jerry excoriates a couple of commenters to stories black culture. You know, the "why don't they go back to where they came from" stuff.
Comments are a chance to hear from people, and overtly racist references are usually excised from here as are many egregiously personal inferences. However, sanitizing things too much is counterproductive too. Fair comments about public figures is allowed.
Those of us who cull comments often shake our heads at one some emboldened souls have to say, but allowing hate to appear , even if its the words of others, makes you culpable in some eyes, Jerry. So be careful.
