A few years ago New Jersey Governor Christie Whitman fired Carl Williams, the state police superintendent, within hours of the publication of an interview in which he said:
“If you’re looking at the methamphetamine market, that seems to be controlled by the motorcycle gangs, which are basically predominately white. If you’re looking at heroin and stuff like that, your involvement there is more or less Jamaican … Today … the drug problem is cocaine and marijuana. It is most likely a minority group that’s involved with that. They aren’t going to ask some Irishman to be part of their (gang) because they don’t trust them.”
I wonder if she’s read the new UN report that one in 10 of all passengers on flights from Jamaica is smuggling drugs. Seems doubtful—on racial matters the final standard is “sensitivity,” and sensitivity means no attention can be paid to the actual issues. So Whitman could throw an honorable long-time public servant to the jackals for speaking out honestly and very moderately, and never be criticized for it at all.
