I was listening to the radio (1010 AM, WINS, New York) this week and heard a report of some Jewish people in Roslyn, LI who received some Jewish hate mail.
Apparently they got some letter in the mail emblazoned with a Swastika. The police were investigating.
I began thinking to myself wow, Black people confort racism on a much higher level on a daily basis. I really could not understand why the Roslyn, NY incident was even newsworthy, relatively speaking.
See, I get racist email all the time. Usually I just ignore it and at this stage of the game I’m somewhat immune to it. I know there are people who hate Black folks. I wish I could tell these racists to save their ink and time, I don’t need the reminder.
Well the same day of the Roslyn incident I got a letter in the mail myself. Addressed to AALBC.com and Staff. A scan of a portion of the letter is shown above.
Is this letter newsworthy. Should I phone the press or call Reverend Al? Am I too desensitized for my own good?
