Stephen Elliott: Paris, The Hero - Politics on The Huffington Post: "This is about class warfare of the kind the rich have been waging on the poor. This is about separate and unequal. This is about a generation of poor stripped of political power in jail or on parole. And Paris Hilton has got America talking about these things."
If you think they have been hard on Paris, they're a lot harder on everyone else. Rodney King was driving without a license, too. Why didn't they beat the hell out of her like they did him?
