Where is the outcry on the right over this?

Atrios and David Brock rightly express outrage over this column by Sam Francis:

But the ad's message also was that interracial sex is normal and legitimate, a fairly radical concept for both the dominant media as well as its audience.

Nevertheless, for decades, interracial couples of different sexes have been sneaked into advertising, movies and television series, and almost certainly not because of popular demand from either race. The Owens-Sheridan match is only the most notorious to date.

In the minds of those who produced the ad, race is at least as important as the moral and aesthetic norms their ad subverts.

To them, the race as well as the religion, the morality, and the culture of the host society are all equally hostile and oppressive forces that need to be discredited, debunked and destroyed.

This is pretty disgusting stuff, and the excuse that Creators Syndicate syndicates a variety of columnists does not justify running such racist garbage. Or for that matter Michelle Maglagang. Or Joseph Farrah.
