"Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing happened." - Winston Churchill
I disagree with Reason on filtering the internet at public libraries. It bothers me that kids can go to the library and look at porn. This is public money.posted by Sean McCray | 3:21 PM |

Black incomes have never been higher, while unemployment and poverty rates rest at all-time lows. Illegitimacy is finally falling; between 1995 and 2000, the number of black children raised by married parents rose 10%, reversing a 10-year decline. Blacks are completing high school and college in record numbers, which in turn has led to better jobs, higher household incomes and increased levels of homeownership.posted by Sean McCray | 6:42 PM |
The European Crime Wave
Crime has recently hit record highs in Paris, Madrid, Stockholm, Amsterdam, Toronto, and a host of other major cities. In a 2001 study, the British Home Office (the equivalent of the U.S. Department of Justice) found violent and property crime increased in the late 1990s in every wealthy country except the United States. American property crime rates have been lower than those in Britain, Canada, and France since the early 1990s, and violent crime rates throughout the E.U., Australia, and Canada have recently begun to equal and even surpass those in the United States. Even Sweden, once the epitome of cosmopolitan socialist prosperity, now has a crime victimization rate 20 percent higher than the United States.

27 year old black conservative Prime Minister? Possibly in Holland
"Mr. Fortuyn's death has already had a range of unexpected consequences. Among them is that his party's ostensible new leader, João Varela, Mr. Fortuyn's chief deputy, is a black immigrant from the Cape Verde islands, off the coast of West Africa. Mr. Varela, 27, is a successful businessman in Rotterdam.posted by Sean McCray | 1:47 PM |
Black Isn't a Personality Type
When casting black performers, producers should find it as unthinkable not to give them characters to play as they would if the performer were white. Skin color is not a personality trait. To cast black performers without giving them any identifiable personality traits is so dehumanizing that it would be closer to doing the right thing to not cast them at all.posted by Sean McCray | 4:51 PM |
Up Through Slavery
"Gradually she managed to buy all of her children out of slavery, starting with four black children, two daughters and two sons, born before she met Metoyer. She acquired more land and 16 slaves of her own, beside whom she labored in the fields. By the time she died around 1817 at age 75, she and her children had amassed nearly 12,000 acres of plantation land -- most of which they would retain until after the Civil War -- and at least 99 slaves. They had also built their own Catholic church, which still stands. White people sat in the back."posted by Sean McCray | 4:47 PM |

The Globaloney of International Law
This is not an argument for reckless, unchecked international aggression. It is an argument against trusting that the only other alternative is slow, deliberate international tribunals, imposing phantom rules invented on the fly. Law is a system best imposed after the fact. The Nuremburg trials occurred only after the atrocities. It is only because we've become so reliant on the illusory comfort of our justice system that we believe it can apply, without question, to aggression between nations.posted by Sean McCray | 3:39 PM |

The North is More Segregated Than the South
Middle-class blacks, of which there have never been more, are returning to the South--a new South full of integrated suburban communities located just outside metropolitan areas. And they're returning in droves. Of the country's 35 million blacks, 19 million now live in the South, up from 16 million in 1990.posted by Sean McCray | 12:05 AM |
