How many remember just a few years back, during the years of Apartheid in South Africa? Remember the uproar in America and calls from across the Globe for action against South Africa because of it? I'm not defending Apartheid in any way but rather I'm wondering where are the calls for condemnation of what's going on in South Africa today where the act of discrimination and racism has not changed but only the objects of discrimination and racism have changed.
This is exactly the dangers we face in America because so many times it isn't the act itself that is condemned or highlighted but rather a certain group of people and depending on the source the outrage is a measured one. It isn't racism that is condemned but rather a certain group of people and then, more often than not, blame is extended to the whole population rather than understanding that most often it is a very small minority that is actually involved rather than the whole or the majority.
