The researchers merely assume that if a black woman encounters someone who acts as if he is better than she, it must be because she is black, not because, say, he's a stuck-up jerk--or because she is oversensitive.I face this every time I interact with a so called minority, even women. I'm a jerk and people who know me know that. But people who don't know me and who, like the women in this "study" may assume I'm acting the way I am because I'm racist, sexist, homophobe (I know it should be 'homophobic' but I like Rush too much to change his favorite phrase,) etc. So I change my behavior, which I think is more racist than just being myself. What irony!
"We sent them food, fertilizer, factories, more than we give our own poor people," said the South Korean, Lee Soon-hwan, a 30-year-old office worker. "And all they pay us back with is this nuclear test."Taranto concludes:
It sounds a lot like Israel's problems with the Palestinian Arabs. And as we all know, the solution to that problem is to give the Palestinians a state. Obviously, then, this problem can be solved by giving the Norks a state.
Oh, wait . . .
"I think most Americans want someone at the bench when they're making decisions that haven't just spent their life in a cloistered ivy tower but understand what its like to break barriers."
“I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life."
-Judge Sonia Sotomayor, in her Judge Mario G. Olmos Law and Cultural Diversity Lecture at the University of California (Berkeley) School of Law in 2001
We made one great mistake regarding Guantanamo: No terrorist should have made it that far. All but a handful of those grotesquely romanticized prisoners should have been killed on the battlefield.
The few kept alive for their intelligence value should have been interrogated secretly, then executed.
Terrorists don't have legal rights or human rights. By committing or abetting acts of terror against the innocent, they place themselves outside of humanity's borders. They must be hunted as man-killing animals.
Obama is a pathological liar? Well, that's news.
And if he succeeds (do you now understand what "I hope he fails" means?) we really will be out of money or even out of paper to print more of it. And, of course, health care will suck as it does in every single country when government gets involved.
This is why it's impossible to argue with a liberal. So many ideas are off the table that there is nothing left to discuss. It's almost as if liberals didn't want to be presented with facts, evidence, historical events, etc.
A new Gallup Poll, conducted May 7-10, finds 51% of Americans calling themselves "pro-life" on the issue of abortion and 42% "pro-choice." This is the first time a majority of U.S. adults have identified themselves as pro-life since Gallup began asking this question in 1995.Makes sense. The other side is killing its members.
