Sandcrawler PSA : Political Correctness 2011

Both articles describe dead junkies but....

link one.

Jeff Conaway, who starred in the sitcom Taxi, played swaggering Kenickie in the movie musical Grease and publicly battled drug and alcohol addiction on Celebrity Rehab, died Friday. He was 60.
And...

link two

Gil Scott-Heron died Friday afternoon in New York, his book publisher reported. He was 62. The influential poet and musician is often credited with being one of the progenitors of hip-hop, and is best known for the spoken-word piece "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised."
blah blah blah blah.

Then way down there, at the end of the page....hmmm... You tell me, is it just more politically correct to kick a dead white Junkie in paragraph one.

Or is Gil Scott-Heron just getting off because he was a better commie?
