    As we now move into the official Political Aftermath period of the Boston bombing — the period that will determine the long-term legislative fallout of the atrocity — the dynamics of privilege will undoubtedly influence the nation’s collective reaction to the attacks. That’s because privilege tends to determine: 1) which groups are — and are not — collectively denigrated or targeted for the unlawful actions of individuals; and 2) how big and politically game-changing the overall reaction ends up being.---- .....“White privilege is knowing that even if the bomber turns out to be white, no one will call for your...
  • The French Flock to a Feel-Good Movie "Untouchables"

     When it was released last month, “Intouchables” seemed an unremarkable, lowbrow French comedy, a small-budget film with actors little known outside France hamming it up in a story about a stodgy, disabled aristocrat and the good-humored ex-con whom he hires as his aide.  But only four weeks after its release the movie has attracted 11 million viewers, almost 17 percent of the French population. “Intouchables,” is based on the true story of Philippe PozzodiBorgo, a wealthy businessman who was left a quadriplegic after an accident, and his aide, an unemployed, Algerian-born resident of a lower-class banlieue. (The film recreates the...

    When Will White People Stop Making Movies Like "Avatar"? Critics have called alien epic Avatar a version of Dances With Wolves because it's about a white guy going native and becoming a great leader. But Avatar is just the latest scifi rehash of an old white guilt fantasy. Spoilers... Whether Avatar is racist is a matter for debate. Regardless of where you come down on that question, it's undeniable that the film - like alien apartheid flick District 9, released earlier this year - is emphatically a fantasy about race. Specifically, it's a fantasy about race told from the point...

    Bob Parks: Black & Right ^ | 5/23/09 | Bob Parks
    As a resident of Massachusetts, I see real parallels between the rise and fall of our first black governor Deval Patrick, and the rise and coming fall of the first black president, Barack Obama. Let's get to some politically correct, uncomfortable-to-say for some, specifics. 1. The Ballot Becomes The Race CardBoth Deval Patrick and Barack Obama had the same campaign guru: David Axelrod.Using white liberal guilt to his political advantage, Axelrod created candidates that were immune from the normal political vetting process, as any attempt to do such would be called veiled racism. With that, they run with vague slogans...

    January 05, 2009, 7:00 a.m. The Upside of ObamaWill he end white liberal guilt? By Mark Goldblatt If the election of Barack Obama — a 47-year-old black man with a political resume as ephemeral as a Mets pennant drive and a governing philosophy as dubious as Paris Hilton’s choice of boyfriends — accomplishes nothing else, it should illustrate the peculiar distorting effect on American society of white liberal guilt. The final nail in the coffin of John McCain’s presidential candidacy, it now seems clear, was the fact that the American economy tanked in the months before the election. Fairly...

    Those who have been closely following the politics of the Democratic primaries may have noticed that someone is missing -- and I'm not referring to Bob Shrum, the Rev. Al Sharpton or an as-yet-undiscovered "Gravel Girl." I'm talking about the white male voter, or at least a certain long-coveted variety thereof. He is variously known as "NASCAR dad" -- that shirt-sleeved, straight-talkin', these-colors-don't-run fella who votes his cultural values above all else -- or "Bubba," as Steve Jarding and Dave "Mudcat" Saunders affectionately call him in their book, "Foxes in the Henhouse." Start looking on milk cartons for Bubba because...

    Three college leaders lose jobs over cover-up of rape-slaying School officials told family there was no foul play By Jeff Karoub ASSOCIATED PRESS July 17, 2007 YPSILANTI, Mich. – Three Eastern Michigan University administrators, including the president, have been forced out, months after top school officials were accused of covering up the rape and slaying of a student by publicly ruling out foul play. President John Fallon was fired, and Vice President of Student Affairs Jim Vick and Public Safety Director Cindy Hall lost their jobs at the 23,500-student public university, the chairman of the school's governing board said yesterday....

    (04/19/07 -- DURHAM) - A week after state Attorney General Roy Cooper dropped all charges in the Duke Lacrosse case about a dozen people are protesting that decision. Thursday morning they gathered outside the house on North Buchanan Street, where the infamous party took place, calling for justice. They say the Attorney General made the wrong decision. On March 13, 2006 an exotic dancer accused three Duke Lacrosse players of kidnapping and raping her. All of those charges have been dropped citing insufficient evidence. AG Cooper said in a press conference last week the accuser could not identify the...

Given the natural disutility of labor, most of us are averse to work, and fortunate indeed are those who find jobs they love, or find they can be happy in any job. Most of us recognize that we must take the bitter with the sweet, and we toil...
