Public Square: Tower City isn’t Racist, Pete Kotz is

Posted By on Thu, Dec 6, 2007 at 1:52 PM

A phone call from Canton in response to “Pragmatic Racism,” November 28… Hello, Mr. Kotz. This is Bill Hardy, calling from Canton. I just read your piece about pragmatic racism at the mall up there in Cleveland. These shop owners and the mall owners are complaining about loud music with obscene music, the occasional pushing and shoving and fights, and they’re hanging out loitering and not buying anything, and they made a move to stop this. Why do you see that as against blacks? When you think of obscenity and shoving and loitering, do you think of black people? I think the racism lies inside you. I think you have to do a little self-examination, because all kids do that.
