I understand that in the horrific matter of yesterday’s Waukesha parade SUV massacre, the New York Times isn’t allowed to come within 100 yards of mentioning the ethnicity of the alleged driver-slash-perpetrator — 39 year-old Darrell Brooks.

Then again what happened doesn’t appear to have been motivated by anything more than raw, idiot-level nihilism. Brooks is reportedly a common criminal. True, Waukesha is an overwhelmingly white bedroom community, but there doesn’t seem to be any linkage between that fact and the recent Kyle Rittenhouse trial, which happened in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
