Examples of Colin in a Sentence

  1. Republican Rep. Jason Lewis:

    Another thing the media is ignoring that's the return of race riots in America, in Chicago, in Philadelphia, and all across the fruited plain, there is a racial war going on, remember when we interviewed Colin Flaherty, author of a White Girl Bleed A Lot, where Colin Flaherty documents, from Minneapolis to Portland to Miami to Philadelphia, the violent racial crime that's going on, and most of it black on white, but the media choose to ignore that as well. Now, no one can discount the horrible legacy of slavery. No one can discount the sin of America's past -- but the chances today, and I want to be clear about this, I know it's provocative, but I want to be clear -- the chances today of a gang of KKK members beating up a black kid are remote compared to the opposite. A gang of black on white crime.
