    That Folio Weekly cover actually inflames racial passions and tensions on both sides. It solves nothing. There is no hope for a better future in this illustration. It is only a feeding of hatred and animosity and it polarizing both sides. When you think you are helping you are simply perpetuating the victimhood mentality in blacks and causing whites to either supplicate to this view or to take an oppositional stand. You are part of the problem when it comes to racial animosity. The illustration makes a mountain out of a molehill by having the masses do the shoveling. Is your concern for racial justice equal?

    Will you also be making illustrations about the New Haven discrimination against white firefighters?
