Reverse Discrimination in the City of Brotherly Love

I always heard of Philadelphia being called the "City of Brotherly Love." I just never realized that love was reserved only for the Brothers!
Apparently, four white employees were fired from their jobs with the Philadelphia school district for "racial reasons". This may be hard to understand for those of you in other parts of the country, but Philly is a pay-to-play city wrought with nepotism and racism (or should I say reverse-racism?).
The lead attorney for the Philadelphia school district (who remember is arguing against racism) proceeded to call the Caucasian jurors "crackers".
As the author points out, this may not be a particularly offensive term to most people. But in today's Politically Correct atmosphere where almost anything can be construed to be racially charged and offensive to someone, you can't expect to win too many battles against racism by throwing around racial slurs. Not even in the city of Brother-ly love.
