    Earlier today I read the reader comments to the WaPo coverage about the arrest of its reporter.

    One self-described conservative actually blamed the WaPo for the arrest, because they sent a black reporter to cover the demonstrations. (The police would have assumed that a white reporter was "on their side?")

    That's the powerful, race-hyperconscious filter through which some people hear every sentence the President utters. In prepared speeches on tinderbox subjects, he takes a cautious tone so as not to make things worse.
