How does this make SPLC racists?!
Reader comment on: The New Anti-Racist Racists

I certainly agree with Murray that the SPLC article is reckless, poorly argued, and dangerous to Ayaan and Maajid. But then Murray commits a similar misstep in labeling the SPLC "racist." On what grounds? He seems only to point out that Ayaan is a black immigrant female and the SPLC is composed primarily of white men. This does not make them racists (unless their attack on Ayaan was based on her being black).
I think reactionary language, such as that used here by Mr Murray, only reduces the impact of his work and undermines the (very valid) attacks on the ideas containing in the SPLC article.
