Is "Anti-racist" codeword for "Anti-white"? Yes, IF you are a racist white. Now, IF you can believe polls here (even CNN commentators seem to be biased towards the Republicans and thus live, to some extent, in the neo-conservative "bubble"), just over 30% of white males...

Just to add my 2ȼ (cents, the smallest coin here in the US): There is certainly more to this story than has so far been presented. 1) All this about weaving and resistant attitude by the deceased student comes from the campus policeman. The dead student is not available to defend his actions. 2) It...

rousseau, A while back I read David Laird Dungan's A History of the Synoptic Problem , and Part Two contains chapters on the emergence of modernism.

The lone marksman who is later himself killed is much more consistent with the direct military mind. A scenario where a gunman kills an important political figure and then is quickly killed himself is eerily similar to that which occurred in the Philippines when Benigno Aquino, Jr., who was shot de...

Actually, the truth was that there was at that time a terrible shortage of violin strings, due to the great demand for stringed instruments occasioned by boodge-wah owners of small businesses who insisted on being serenaded while consuming their meals.
