MARK STEYN: Well in a sense it is -- the whole controversy is a kind of minstrel show in itself. In that we're sort of putting on a show about being concerned about black people -- for example abortion. Black women account for, I think it's somewhere between 35 and 40% of all abortions. In New York City more black babies are aborted than born. Now so if you actually take the black community seriously, that is a huge question, and it's much more relevant than some guy putting on a Klan hood for his stupid yearbook photo thirty five years ago.
