I think that since we now know that Rifi Newaz and Mark Donnelly did, in fact, have race-neutral reasons for their strikes in the Ricky Whitfield case that it stands to reason that Pat Lykos:
1. should reinstate both men to their prior positions; and
2. issue a PUBLIC apology for smearing their reputations in the media.
I'm going to keep track here until she actually does it. Just like I did with Alan Bernstein last year when he refused to run the Yarmulke Story.
It's Day One, Judge Lykos.
You're on the clock.
