This is an example of the mainstream media creating "news" out of whole cloth -- it is saying, in effect, that we have been focusing on the gang of white people crowding in front of television cameras for long enough (no argument there), and need to get back to caring what black leaders think.
Why not tell us what Irish leaders, Hispanic leaders, Japanese leaders, and Arab-Americans think of the Schiavo case?
Or perhaps the Sun-Times is simply responding to Jesse Jackson's recent play for some air time. The Sun-Times probably figures that it has to make it clear to us crackers that the Rev. Jackson does not necessarily speak for all blacks.
