Yes, but they could have raised a finger to the air and tested the winds and modified things to account for the area's views.My uncle is an orthodontist who makes six figures a year, drives a Jag, prefers Brooks Brothers suits, donates three days a month offering free care to low income children, is an active member of his church and golfs a consistent three under par. Just last year, he was pulled over by the police while driving through an upscale white neighborhood. After hauling him out of his car, frisking him and putting him in handcuffs while they checked out his plates, he was released with the explanation that there had been a series of robberies by a black youth (uncle is 57 years old) -- and no apology. By using the same finger in the air test, should he have avoided that particular neighborhood?Wrong perceptions are wrong perceptions, whether held by an individual or a community. Wrong perceptions do not excuse interference with a legal gathering. We should not have to pander to the fears of any majority group just because they don't understand.Uhura :o)
