Amusing: In response to my post yesterday about "too much" choice, Gary Gravett emailed me: "People are going to say that you are "irritated" at diversity and discriminate against minorities. You should treat all jams equally!" To which I replied: "Good point. All jams are equal!"

An EXCELLENT post on Right Nation under the heading: "Prejudice is Good". An excerpt: "As someone who was born to a black father and grew up in white community, I have often been asked, "How do you deal with racism?" The answer is racism has never been a big issue with me. I have experienced prejudice. But that's not the same thing. Prejudice is good. Prejudice is an instinct; it's unavoidable. It is through prejudice that we determine how to approach a situation. Our prejudgment is not always correct. But that does not mean we shouldn't prejudge. For example, when you're walking along a downtown street and decide to take a shortcut through an alley, and spot a group of four young black men, wearing "dew rags" and baggy pants, while barking foul-mouthed grunts at each other, what do you do? If you're smart, you turn around, take the long way".

Walter Williams looks at the evidence and says that it is high levels of discipline that black High School students need in order to achieve -- just the opposite of what Leftists prescribe for them.

About time: "A well-known conservative is reaching out to state lawmakers to beat back what he claims is rampant political bias against students and faculty who do not agree with a pervasive liberal orthodoxy in state schools across the country. As a result, leaders in several states are reportedly working on anti-bias legislation, including Colorado state Sen. John Andrews. Andrews told that lawmakers in the state General Assembly plan to introduce a bill in coming weeks that would require state college and university officials to educate students and faculty better about their rights against political and ideological bias by other professors and administrators."


The Left have always wanted more spent on welfare and made "Fascism" a swear-word. President Bush deposed a brutal Fascist dictator and sponsored a big expansion of welfare. But instead of being admired by the Left, he is hated with a passion. What does that tell you about the Left? It tells you that they have no principles at all: That everything they have ever claimed to stand for is fake.
