This week marked the 30th anniversary of the 1985 bombing of the MOVE house in Philadelphia. Whites reflected on the 11 adults and children who were killed and the more than 50 black houses burned to the ground. No one was criminally charged for this catastrophe, and this week it was announced that no one would be charged for the police killing of Tony Robinson. Swift and punitive action was taken against New Jersey public school teacher Marilyn Zuniga; she was terminated for permitting her 3rd grade students to write “get well” cards to journalist and convicted cop killer Mumia Abu Jamal. And Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was sentenced to the death penalty; perhaps this impacted some of our listeners thoughts on whether or not the convicted bomber is accepted as White. Chicago had a bit of it all: An announcement of millions in reparations for black victims of Chicago Police Terrorism. And Chicago’s South Side being chosen for the Barack Obama presidential library.
