Media silence

Fred points out how the media hides the fact that blacks commit nearly all of the inter-racial crime in the United States:

Why do the government and the press consciously hide the race of criminals? Part of it is abject cowardice. Part of it is reflex, the journalistic templating that is now almost genetic. Reporters are not thoughtful. White-on-black crime is something you write about. Black-on-white isn’t. Truth doesn’t matter. A reporter wants to keep his job and get along in the news room. You don’t make waves where you work.

The deeper reason, though, is otherwise. If the press reported the extent of black crime, hell could easily break loose.

This is why the Duke charade was obviously false from the start, because white men almost never rape black women. The incidence is so low that it is almost statistical static, whereas black men rape white women thirty times as often. Considering that there are 6.2 times more white men in the USA, this means that a black man is 185 times more likely to rape a white woman. Celebrate diversity!

The delta between what they say

And what girls do is why this won’t work:

The latest TV campaign to encourage drivers to respect speed limits features young women wiggling their little fingers at passing speedsters. The gesture represents a small penis in youth culture but in the ads, even an elderly woman uses the signal. So, too, do other young men who are not in the driver’s seat.

Of course, all the purported audience for these ads have to do is look at the women following the Moto and F1 circuits to realize that girls very much like boys who drive very fast. Because girls don’t like boys, girls like cars and money….

Of Christ and chronic

I’m only surprised that it was the “Bong Hits” they objected to:

The Supreme Court tightened limits on student speech Monday, ruling against a high school student and his 14-foot-long “Bong Hits 4 Jesus” banner. Schools may prohibit student expression that can be interpreted as advocating drug use, Chief Justice John Roberts wrote for the court in a 5-4 ruling.

I couldn’t possibly care less what is or is not permitted in a public school. It’s like worrying about what the cows are being taught at the meat-packing plant.

Power to the people

Hamas demonstrates the wonders of modern democracy:

Every Hamas patrol carried with it a laptop containing a list of Fatah operatives in Gaza, and an identity number and a star appeared next to each name. A red star meant the operative was to be executed and a blue one meant he was to be shot in the legs – a special, cruel tactic developed by Hamas, in which the shot is fired from the back of the knee so that the kneecap is shattered when the bullet exits the other side. A black star signaled arrest, and no star meant that the Fatah member was to be beaten and released. Hamas patrols took the list with them to hospitals, where they searched for wounded Fatah officials, some of whom they beat up and some of whom they abducted.

Aside from assassinating Fatah officials, Hamas also killed innocent Palestinians, with the intention of deterring the large clans from confronting the organization. Thus it was that 10 days ago, after an hours-long gun battle that ended with Hamas overpowering the Bakr clan from the Shati refugee camp – known as a large, well-armed and dangerous family that supports Fatah – the Hamas military wing removed all the family members from their compound and lined them up against a wall. Militants selected a 14-year-old girl, two women aged 19 and 75, and two elderly men, and shot them to death in cold blood to send a message to all the armed clans of Gaza.

But as we’re often told in the United States, the people voted for them, so therefore their actions must be right. This is one of the better demonstrations of how democracy is an incredibly stupid substitute for limited, decentralized government, even worse than direct democracy is representational democracy, which allows the political and bureaucratic class to do whatever it wants while avoiding responsibility for it.

Although I’m not sure how accurate that report is, because I’m pretty confident that “kneecappings” weren’t invented by Hamas.
