Dear Friends,

Richard Burt misinterprets the import of "the fault ... in ourselves." 
The fault is not in "liberal-minded" Friendly and Murrow; they are not 
the "ourselves." Burt needs to consider why Murrow's show was canceled 
and who, therefore, was at fault.

And what does Burt mean by "conducted by whites" and "addressed to whites"?

Is Burt's submission as distasteful as I think it is?

I think I missed something along the line. From what wellspring of 
ignorance did the racist comments made regarding those who quote 
Shakespeare come - Is "Othello" also the fodder of high-minded white 
racists -- Please  dear Jove let me have misinterpreted these comments 
of Mr. Burt.
