It seemed kind of strange to me back in 10/23/2004 when posted the story that “Bush Signs Global ‘Anti-Semitism’ Law.” Don’t get me wrong–I’ve laid flowers at Auschwitz–but why pick one area of human rights violations and not others? In fact, his state department had opposed the legislation, saying it was unnecessary as the department already includes such information in its annual reports on human rights and religious freedom.

“Today I signed the Global Anti-Semitism Review Act of 2004. This law commits the government to keep a record of anti-Semitic acts throughout the world, and also a record of responses to those acts,” Bush said.

Then it occurred to me–even in 2004, when I clipped the article– that the state department should cite the US on such a list, and then wondered how racism is categorized, and if our acts against people of color are being lawfully recorded along with responses to those acts.
