Archie wakes up one Sunday morning to find a swastika has been painted on his front door. At first he thinks it might have been a bunch of juvenile delinquents who might have done it. However, it is soon learned that it was meant for a Jewish activist who lives the next block over. Things become even more heated when a member of a radical Jewish vigilante organization offers to protect the Bunkers even though it might mean busting a few heads. However, at the end of their meeting with the man, the Bunkers receive a dose of sobering reality when it comes to racial violence. Written by
