Ratner and Race
All of us remember the picture of three New York City firemen raising the American flag at Ground Zero on September 11. That photograph was to be memorialized by a statue.
Then, Bruce Ratner, who commissioned the statue, insisted that the statue had to include one white fireman, one Hispanic fireman, and one African-American fireman, even though the three firemen who actually raised the flag were all white.
Despite this, the Rat has no misgivings about shipping away a very good African-American player, leaving the Nets with only Nenad Krstic and Brian Scalabrine as potential replacements on the projected roster, even though Kristic and Scalabrine are both white stiffs.
