The charge of racism...

...is easy to make but more difficult to prove.

What is happening at one historically black college in Georgia is but the latest example. This story -- taken only by itself -- provides the information to suggest that four white students and one white former coach are being treated unfairly because of their skin color.

But as you evaluate the aforementioned story, ask yourself if the information in it answers your questions. Does it, in other words, "prove" the charge of racism (and let's not kid ourselves, that is what they are alleging)?

If you believe that outstanding questions remain, then consider where you will go to get those answers.
