The incident in Belleville has certainly stirred many emotions in people who have watched it and stirred up feelings about race.
Last week the Rev. BT Rice, as vice president of the St Louis County NAACP, announced that school districts allowed race to cloud their judgement in not showing President Obama's speech live to students.
Now Rice tells me he believes that racism, particularily, racist feelings about the president, are fueling the anger over the bus incident.
Conservative blogger Dana Loesch told me people resent, "being blackmailed with the race card every single time they disgaree with the administartion."
I'm not interested in inappropriate responses here.
