RACIAL BIAS . . . NEVER A GOOD THING

There are some things you just don't say, right?

But in the world today, some of those things are more acceptable than others.

Read Mark Steyn's article in the Telegraph (registration required) to see what I mean.

In the article, Mark talks about the double standard in the BBC, where it's OK to make blatantly anti-Semitic comments, but "anti-Arab" comments just cost someone their job, hence the title to Mark's column -- "We are falling under the imam's spell".

As I said, racial bias is never a good thing, but it appears, at least with the BBC, that some racial bias is acceptable.

Wretchard, astute as always, voices his opinion on the matter this morning.
