No Racially Motivated Reaction Here

John Cole posted this earlier, but I think it bares repeating an further analysis.

I don't think I've ever seen more conclusive proof that the modern conservative movement is, despite all statements to the contrary, made up by a fairly large population of whites that are more than willing to judge a person based solely on the color of their skin.

And to echo Cole's point that this man clearly states that he was not once asked his position on anything, I think it bares repeating that those that were acting in a threatening manner toward this man were met with the exact opposite. This man composed himself quite well as he was surrounded by people shouting at him simply because of the color of his skin.

The only question that I have is whom the man was that was obviously escorting him away from the crowd. He seemed to present himself as someone with a position of power enough to make decisions on who should and shouldn't be there. Not only that, but did you catch the exchange between the rather tall fellow and the two men standing next to him as the "interloper" was escorted away. It seems that they thought this was all some sort of set-up to make them look racist. Considering how they treated this man, not once allowing him to voice his opinion or make any sort of case for or against Park 51, singling him out based on nothing more than he was "not white", I'll let you be the judge as to how they really feel.
