What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Man Arrested for Attempting to Burn Gay Pride Flag," by Bianca Phillips:

"One of the things that makes hate crimes so dangerous for society is that they can lead to disproportionate retaliatory violence. 'If you prick us do we not bleed? If you tickle us do we not laugh? If you poison us do we not die? And if you wrong us shall we not revenge?' William Shakespeare."
