The recent assault on a St.Louis school bus of a white student by a black student is pretty horrific. Was it racially motivated? Perhaps. But given we know no details surrounding the event, it’s impossible to tell. But Michelle Malkin has waded in and declared it ‘Racial Thuggery‘ on her blog, not because she know more than anyone else, but because she thinks it is. And because Malkin thinks it is, it must be.
Unfortunately, this is also food for the Teabaggers. Obama’s Presidency, Serena Williams verbal assault on a line judge, Kanye West’s appalling behavior at the MTV Awards, and now this ‘racial thuggery’, is proof to the fringe Right that African Americans are taking over America.
