The abuse of whites in the mainstream media is a depressingly routine—and unchecked—affair. For years, characters like Mark Potok have gone unanswered and unchallenged as go-to sources on "hate."
But there's more to the story than what the "watchdog"
groups have to say, and two journalists have noticed.
Louis Andrews, a spokesman for the National Policy Institute, a white advocacy group, was included in an Australian radio broadcast
(alongside Potok) and an Associated Press story on reaction to the Holocaust Museum shooting
("There's no such thing as post-racial" is about as refreshing a quote as I've heard in a long time.)
It's about time. Of course, for the willing journalist, there are plenty of white voices (both professional and otherwise) out there who might have a good quote about immigration, affirmative action and other issues facing them. Why not include them in your stories?
