Early in the evening, the participants split up -- parents went upstairs in the Randallstown split-level, teens and young adults stayed down.Then the serious game began. The subject was hate.Each group was asked to study a list of eight narratives, all examples of anti-Semitism. Would they select the same three as the most offensive or the most dangerous? If so, would everyone agree on which was the most abhorrent example?What happened was a surprise to Ofra Fisher, director of the B'nai B'rith Department of Jewish Family Life.

As a white man with experience in these matters, let me say the following about Nation of Islam Minister Louis T. Farrakhan and his echo, Khalid Abdul Muhammad, and the general reaction to some things they've been saying:Sometimes white people can be very dumb.Yes, Farrakhan and Muhammad are driving a stake into the heart of racial harmony and, yes, they seem to take particular relish in sticking it to the Jews and, yes, their words are not only dangerous but they badly distort history.And, yes, a lot of white people find this not only offensive but threatening.

ALL HOPE that the inspired Million Man March had brought Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan into moderation is shattered. On his month-long tour of African and Middle Eastern states, Minister Farrakhan has sought out as friends not only the enemies of the United States but also those singled out by black American leaders for condemnation as tyrants.Most black members of Congress as well as Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke have joined Randall Robinson, the leader of TransAfrica, in denouncing Nigerian dictator Sani Abacha for suppressing dissent and now for the execution of Ken Saro-Wiwa.
