Racism on TV and Academe

Georgetown Professor Michael Eric Dyson on MSNBC called for the killing of more white children before America "will see" its problems with race. I'm wondering when his buns and muffins get pulled from Wal-Mart shelves. Oh wait. He's not a TV chef, he's a professor at a Catholic University (Jesuit) who is paid handsomely by MSNBC and NBC to whip up hatred instead of cakes. I would never deny him his first amendment rights to be stupid, but isn't this like shouting fire in a crowded theater since riots had already begun? MSNBC deserves ratings even worse than they currently are, its advertisers should abandon it, and the Jesuits need to go back to the drawing board on how to educate young people.

A black liberal friend has corrected me--said he didn't call for killing. I suspose "deaths" could be a nuanced, but do you think rioters noticed?
