"While it may not be politically correct to say so, the fact is that Mississippi's back in the civil rights murder business.
For Mississippians of my generation, a civil rights murder means just one thing - a white person killed a black person more or less for the 'crime' of being black - other details optional.
But across this nation, this state and even in the small town where I lay my head at night and go to church on Sunday, a new civil rights murder modus operandi is developing in which a somebody kills a Hispanic person more or less for the 'crime' of being Hispanic - other details optional.
What do Hispanic immigrants in Mississippi today have in common with beseiged African-American citizens in Mississippi in the 1950s and 1960s?"
