Is Bob Dylan a Racist?

Is Bob Dylan a Racist?
BY BILL WINKLER
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM
OPINION

To us of a certain age, Bob Dylan was what Bruce Springsteen would be for a younger set: The philosopher-musician.

Today he stands accused of a criminal act by French prosecutors. Why?

As reported in the New York Times, Bob Dylan's "crime" is this, that in an interview for the September 2012 issue of Rolling Stone Magazine, he offered his opinion that "American blacks could sense whether whites had slave-master blood 'just like Jews can sense Nazi blood and the Serbs can sense Croatian blood'". This comment offended a group calling itself the "Council of Croatian Community and Institutions in France" which asked French prosecutors to charge Dylan under a French law prohibiting "public insult and inciting hate".
