Radio star ‘Exiled to Racistville’

Jim Goad on the firing of Anthony Cumia, of the legendary shock-jock duo, Opie & Anthony:

But Cumia is far more than merely the latest celebrity victim of the ongoing Great Anti-Racist Purge. What adds an entirely different dimension to his case is the alleged real-life violence. At the time of this writing, his purported Negress assailant has yet to emerge to tell her side, but if Cumia’s not lying, his firing and one-way boat ticket to Racistville are evidence that in modern America, it’s considered worse for white people to say or think bad things about blacks than it is for blacks to physically assault whites.
