Our racist universe
The universe is racist—because it keeps supplying the most perverse anti-black stereotypes. Which in turn requires virtuous, liberal people to engage in the endless labor of mentally canceling out those stereotypes in their head, either by denying their existence, or by attributing them to white racism.
From the Fox News station WJBK in Detroit:
Witnesses say two men in the Brightmoor neighborhood were so passionate about the way they make Kool-Aid, they started arguing with each other over who does it better.About which Paul Kersey at SPBDL comments:
This is all a dream, isn’t it? A comedian or script writer trying to come up with the most perverse Black stereotypes to create a joke or scene in an absurd film couldn’t conjure up a story like the one Andrea Isom broke for MyFoxDetroit.LA writes:
Just wondering: are there still Middle American cities that are bent out of shape about their lack of “diversity,” i.e. about their lack of blacks, and are seeking ways to attract more of them?

Thank you. If The Bell Curve was important to you, you will like my article,Clark Coleman writes:
Clark, it hurts to admit it, but you have touched the worm of guilty doubt that always lingers in the back of my mind. Even as I keep arguing, with apparent total conviction and sincerity, that blacks’ own qualities and dispositions, and not white racism, are the cause of black dysfunction and violence, I am always secretly wondering, Is this really true? Have whites really tried everything that could be tried to help lift blacks out of their increasingly backward, disordered, and menacing state? Haven’t we given up too soon? Isn’t it really the case that if we had shown true compassion and generosity and had gone the extra mile, and the extra ten thousandth mile, and provided yet more jobs training programs, and more federally funded neighborhood sports activities, and more Head Start, and more No Child Left Behind, and more Afro-Centric education, and more Ebonics (yes, I realize that Afrocentrism and Ebonics contradict No Child Left Behind, but we have to try everything, don’t we?), and more Section 8 housing to place improvident and criminal blacks among middle class whites, and more magnet schools, and more charter schools, and if we had also worked much, much, much harder to remove racist stereotypes from our own minds and strip ourselves of the racial suprematist attitudes borne of our invisible white skin privilege which permeates every aspect of our waking and sleeping lives, then those two young black men in Detroit would not have been shooting each other over which one made better Kool-Aid?June 1

I’m sure Michelle means to ban Kool-Aid, which is high in calories and has no nutritional value, and it’s a shame she didn’t get around to doing so in time to prevent this senseless tragedy. This goes to show that she and Barack need another term to get the job done.
