Wait just a damn minute. Those portraits didn’t honor people for their skin color, they were former faculty staff.

You didn’t think it would end with the Muhammad cartoons, did you? It began with the cartoons. Once the West submitted to that demand, it opened the floodgates to more demands, more sharia.
