RE: William Bennett

Regarding the criticism of William Bennett for a statement wrenched out of context and then attacked as racist by the leader of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, let us take note. The NAACP is so dated in its views that it continues to go by a name that in itself is racist. The word colored was dropped years ago, the episodic progressive terms of replacement being Negro, Black, Afro-American, and now triumphantly African-American!

If the NAACP cannot modernize its name to keep up with modern sensibilities its leaders should…. Well I leave it to Bennett to tell its leaders what to do. Though, Bill, in doing so please do not sound as self-serving as your critics now sound. And unlike them do not deny them their First Amendment rights. Were they banned from the airwaves America would be denied many reliable sources of laughter.
