Our absurd society
Doug Powers writes at Michelle Malkin’s site:
Let me get this straight — the William Morris Agency has reportedly dropped Mel Gibson as a client because he used the “N-word” in an unhinged privately recorded rant, but William Morris continues to represent the likes of P. Diddy, Kanye West, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, Eminem, 50 Cent, and many more, who broadcast the same awful word to millions — daily, unabashedly and continually?Again, Gibson said any number of extremely offensive things in his surreptitiously recorded private phone conversation with his former girl friend, including telling her that with the way she dressed she deserved to be gang raped. But the thing that got him in trouble, the thing that has all the tongues wagging, the thing that has scandalized the world, the thing that has people saying his movie career is over, was his single use of the word “niggers.” Some of the news stories even said that Gibson punched his ex-mistress in the mouth and broke her two front upper teeth. Yet in every story in which that charge has appeared, it is way down in the article, as a distant afterthought compared to the only news that really matters—his use of the “N” word. Is any further proof needed that the worst crime in liberal society—worse than disgusting invective, worse than wishing for a woman to be gang-raped, worse than punching a woman in the mouth and knocking her teeth out—is for a white person to say anything discriminatory about black people?
We used to be a nation under God. Now we’re a nation under blacks.

It’s a small point but Mary J. Blige is not a rapper whose “music” consists of long strings of profanity and n-word laden rap.
