Evoking memories of racist Southern sheriffs hunting black people with vicious, snarling dogs and fire hoses, Governor Markell has met with local Muslims to deliver this message: "We love and respect you, and please forgive any future incidents in which we might be mean to you, act violent, or hurt your feelings. We apologize in advance, just in case."
As far as I know, no-one is disturbing the Muslims of Delaware. So the Governor is pro-actively meeting with them, in case some future Delaware resident frowns at one of them or asks a Muslim why he/she is wearing something funny-looking on his or her head.
I have not read any news bulletins about Governor Markell meeting with Chinese American residents of Delaware, deeply regretting the absence of chopsticks in local eating places and assuring them that we all know they are patriotic even though they don't eat with knives and forks.
Why doesn't he find something constructive to do, like sorting his sock drawer, or solving crossword puzzles?
