    Funny, I've re-read everything I've written as preparation for answering this,
    and the only simple polarization of the world into the forces of good and evil
    I can find is in this letter of yours Mike. In fact I have only recently
    published a book, Hating Whitey and Other Progressive Causes, praising King and
    re-affirming my commitment to the principles he stood for as against my former
    comrades on the left who have chosen to betray those principles and support the
    kind of racial preferences -- privilege by skin color -- that was the
    foundation of the segregationist system in the American south and the apartheid
    system in South Africa. wrote:
