When racism blinds your logic & your eyes

The actions of avowed racist Frazier Glenn Miller provokes memories of the hate killing of Vincent Chen back in 1982. Miller, once a KKK Grand Dragon, has a long history of hate acts against Blacks and Jews. Last week he was on the deadly prowl for Jews to kill. He ultimately gunned down a man and his 14 year old grandson at the Jewish Community Center in Kansas City and a woman at a Jewish assisted living facility. None of them were Jews, all were Christians.

Ronald Ebens and his stepson, Michael Nitz, were Chrysler workers. A hate-filled atmosphere  in Detroit blamed the Japanese for the slumping sales of U.S. cars back in the 80s. Armed with baseball bats, the two went looking for some Japanese heads to crack. They came across an innocent Vincent Chin who was Chinese American and an only child. Chin’s death galvanized Asian American communities and other freedom-loving people across the country.

Ebens and Nitz, who couldn’t tell the difference between Chinese and Japanese,  received no jail time and received three years probation, outraging Chen’s supporters.

Time will tell what fate awaits Miller.
