Sometimes Racism is just so obvious

Let's hear it for unscripted call in shows to let us see people's true "colors." Bill Bennett, Mr. We should all have High Moral Values but Gambling is OK, stated that if black babies were all aborted, the crime rate would go down.

Said Bennett: "But I do know that it's true that if you wanted to reduce crime, you could, if that were your sole purpose, you could abort every black baby in this country, and your crime rate would go down."

He went on to call that "an impossible, ridiculous and morally reprehensible thing to do, but your crime rate would go down. So these far-out, these far-reaching, extensive extrapolations are, I think, tricky."

I realize this is old news by now, but I spent the weekend studiously NOT watching news.

By the same ridiculous and indeed abhorrently racist logic if you aborted every white baby your crime rate would go down even more n'est-ce pas?
