"Wilson's outraged response... had something to do with race." -- The Tribune
Edited on Wed Sep-16-09 10:35 AM by berni_mccoy
Joe the Volcano has a history of outraged responses over race issues. Here is commentary by the Sarasota Tribune on Joe's outraged response to Strom Thurmond's African American daughter. (from Dec. 2003)

So I suspect Wilson's outraged response, a knee-jerk reaction that this was a threat that must be condemned and denied, had something to do with race.

Maybe Wilson is way too steeped in the old values of yesterday's South, when white men might have had sex with the black women who worked for them, but those women and their children knew better than to talk about it.

Not around white people, anyway. There were reputations to consider, so the truth was not allowed. For some, those were the good old days when people knew their place.
