I thought I saw death, but nothing can make me question the philosophy of nonviolence."john lewis

One might ask what the reaction would be if a prominent journalist urged South Africans to "give Sambo a seat in the bus," or proposed that Jews be granted something to lose, because "if you give Hymie a seat in the bus, he may limit his demands."
