Mary Beth Maxwell has been forced to resign. She used the N-Word. She did not call anyone the word, but used it to demonstrate its harmful and hateful impact. She has white skin. Enough said. When you have racism in a society, it does these things, and gets defended by the same type of people who defended the racism of old.
The only difference? People who believed blacks or Jewish people were inferior or should be held to different standards or got what they deserved were sitting on centuries of such bilge becoming ingrained in the social teaching. The new racism that says whites should be treated the way Jews or blacks were treated is almost overnight. Those embracing it have absolutely no excuse, and are far worse than all those they so roundly condemn who came before.
