What's Racist and What's Not

This was a clear-cut and blatant case of racism. It deserves all the attention it is getting and more. An innocent man was shot dead just because of the colour of his skin.

This however was just a little bit of harmless fun. Here, people who actually did commit an offense, albeit a minor one, were actually let off. Making it into such a big deal actually does disservice to the merits of diversity. An example of the excessive political correctness which actually dilutes the seriousness of the race problem.
