"I’d expect nothing less from a member of your tribe, after all, didn’t you guys trade Jesus for a bag of nickels?"

I only received one piece of fan mail today. But I thought it worth sharing, since it’s exemplary.

Subject: i’d expect nothing less

Dear Weinstein:

Do you give this much coverage to the random attacks on white people all across the country at the hands of blacks and browns?  Did you ever stop and think that maybe George Zimmerman did act in self defense?  I wasn’t there the night of the George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin incident that led to Trayvon’s death, and neither were you.  I’m not sure why you make it a point to write personal attacks against George Zimmerman in your articles, when  you don’t know for sure what happened that night.  Young black males TERRORIZE every town and city in America that has a substantial black population, yet you dedicate weeks on one trial because the alleged victim is black.  Who’s really the racist?  I’d expect nothing less from a member of your tribe, after all, didn’t you guys trade Jesus for a bag of nickels?

Brian J. Riece Jr.

Why do I do what I do? Not for riches or fame, God knows.

I just want people who think like “Brian J. Riece Jr.” to be flushed out into the open. If they can’t stop being racist fools, than maybe at least they can be made to feel that their place in culture is marginal, radical — that the future is not theirs, that nobody in the marketplace of ideas will buy the putrescence that they’re selling, and that there are costs to being hateful boors.

That’s my hope, anyway. Maybe I’m wrong. Will we let them have the future?
