Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:\
I missed this earlier. Sarah Johnson has proposed a ‘race offender registry.” The idea is that people who are racists (actual, accused or suspected) should be prohibited from living near racial minorities. It’s based on the sex offender registry concept. Her idea is back in the news because Ms. Johnson was accidentally injured in a drive-by shooting. Honestly, I didn’t know they had those in England, what with guns being banned and all.
In honor of her bravery and sacrifice, I’d like to give her concept a try. I’d be willing to live in a community entirely made up of suspected or potential racists: White people only, no Black people at all to ensure no possibility of racism or microaggression. I envision a large mixed-use development with housing, retail, and casual dining areas called “lunch counters.” Our community motto will be: “Segregation today, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever,” and I already have a great idea for a flag.
We’ll call it ‘Alabama.’
