Yes, it's embarassing that a White man would even be involved in something like this. Pistorius' guilt hasn't been established as yet, but even if this thing came down as he says it did, we can hardly be very proud of the way he reacted to the situation.
And yes, there is one huge mitigating factor if things happened as Pistorius claims -- the fact that White South Africans are forced to live in a constant and palpable state of fear and nervous anticipation -- in fear of the marauding and murderous savagery of the majority black population.
But the message today, while it certainly could affect his case, is not really about his guilt or innocence. Today's news is of a lighter, even humorous nature. It would seem that it is only in a Negro nation that something as farcical as this could happen in a judicial proceeding for murder: latest Pistorius case development.
