Your Non-Black Muslim Headline

When I heard that the story of a worker at "Your Black Muslim Bakery" in Oakland, California who shot a journalist wasn't getting as much play as you might expect, I wasn't surprised.

When they arrest a guy like that, you know they can't headline it "Black Arrested" and then they also can't headline it "Muslim Arrested," so I thought to myself, "What are they going to say—'Baker Arrested'?'"

I wish I'd put that on the blog, because I was right:Bakery handyman charged in editor's killing Henry K. Lee, San Francisco Chronicle. August 7, 2007.
