We are, of course, concerned about racist attacks both locally and nationally. One racist attack is one too many. We must, however, tread the difficult path between proper public discussion of the issue to heighten awareness of it and causing unnecessary alarm in communities where relations between different groups are, by and large, very good.
In that connection, what does worry me is that this questionable map is really producing a poster that a racist mind could gloat over. It could attract more trouble to relatively peaceful areas.
