The Altes e-mail

Posted By on Sat, Dec 1, 2007 at 6:46 AM

John Brummett, feeling charitable, is inclined not to jump to an overly harsh judgment of Sen. Denny Altes for his  e-mail about immigrants and black people -- i.e., that the U.S. is being "overpopulated" by both. But he encourages a look by all at the undeniable fact that race is a component in public feelings about immigrants.

I'd go Brummett's analogy a step further and wonder if the outrage would be so high if the streets of Rogers were lined with lutefisk and smorgasbord restaurants staffed by blonde waitresses who entered the country without proper documents from Scandinavian climes.
