More Post-Racism Racism
The following can't be that big a deal. I mean, Tony Snow told us that “racism isn't that big a deal anymore.” From a story on recent events at Newark, NJ's University of Medicine and Dentistry:
Three paramedics at Newark's University Hospital were fired this week after grainy images taken by a cellphone camera surfaced showing two student interns garbed in white sheets to look like robes of the Ku Klux Klan.
In one of the photographs released by the university, the trainees – both students from Northeastern University in Boston – stand with white sheets draped over their heads; one carrying a wooden cross held together with surgical gauze and tape. An EMS paramedic in a University Hospital uniform can be seen adjusting the sheet of the other.
The sheets, with holes cut out for the eyes, apparently came from an ambulance.
That's no big deal right? Right?
