I'm not posting the video on my site. The fool that created it has gotten enough attention. Trust me: It was pretty much utterly mundane racism of the variety people of color encounter all the time. I went to college in the late 80s/early 90s and I encountered many of the same attitudes from fellow students on my Midwestern campus. The only difference was that You Tube didn't exist. If Wallace's video is merely garden variety racist assholery, why then are so many folks referring to the video as "shocking"?
