The Same Journal Sentinel?

The other day the blogoshere chronicled the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's editorial assigning an asterisk to Clarence Thomas. Now today, this shows up in their weblog:

Students show strength in disputing McGee

It's rare to see in today's youth the strength of individuality as displayed by Keenya Hofmaier and Rosetta Riley. They're the high school students embroiled in a dispute with Mike McGee Jr. over what they say was racist and anti-gay behavior by the Milwaukee alderman. The girls, who are biracial and who embrace both sides of their heritage, call prejudice as they see it, regardless of the source. The assumption that people of color are a homogeneous lot with a single set of beliefs is as offensive and racist as any other stereotype assigned to them.

The emphasis is mine, but isn't that 180 degrees out from what they said just two days ago???

That was my reaction, I even had to go back to their editorial page and make sure they still had the asterisk comments about Thomas on there.

Maybe the paper is bipolar.
