Apologize for the stereotype

By
From page A10 | December 29, 2013 |

In referring to “Duck Dynasty’s” Phil Robertson as a “typical white Southerner,” Steve Gray unwittingly illustrates the ugliness of the stereotype, a blunt instrument used too commonly to dehumanize and denigrate those different from ourselves.

Regardless of what label follows the word “typical,” the damage can be great. Steve, I am awaiting your public apology. I think Phil would forgive you.
