Osama bin Laden didn’t discriminate when it came to the bloody work of terrorism. He was an equal opportunity killer.
And now that he is dead, killed sometime yesterday by a team of Navy SEALS in Pakistan, Americans of all races and religions have taken to the streets and to the blogosphere and airwaves to share in what seems to be a deep and collective exhale. From the gates of the White House in Washington, D.C. to ground zero in New York City, people have come together chanting and waving flags, exhibiting the kind of unity seen last on that terrible day in September almost 10 years earlier.
“Everyone died on 9-11. Blacks, whites, Muslims, Latinos and working class people,” said the Rev. Al Sharpton. “He didn’t care who was in those buildings or on that plane. All Americans shared in that pain and all Americans can share in what we are seeing today.”
