The racist among us

I’ve noticed that Rasheed Shabazz has been getting a lot of space in the Alameda Sun lately. (“Confronting Racist Symbols in Alameda’s Public Spaces,” March 29). He writes well enough and focuses (obsesses?) on a single issue: race. 

I’m well aware that many people are worked up over that issue and feel that it deserves endless discussion. I, myself, have found his writing tedious, until today. 

I think Shabazz clearly crossed the line in pointing out the race of the publishers of the Sun with an intent to diminish their work. Such behavior might well earn one the title of “supremacist.”
