I think that Jeff's personal complaint is that he wasn't utilized--for example, during the Democratic Convention--and was never provided reasons for having been marginalized.Comment Posted By Dan Collins On 31.01.2009 @ 10:23
You're right about the self-aggrandizement, but that's natural, since this really is a subset of identity politics.
Take for example post-structuralist feminism. It's raison d'etre is and always has been to rake all of the positive human impulses into the realm of femininity whilst projecting all the negative ones onto masculinity. For all the mumboing jumbo, it's as simple and stupid as that.Comment Posted By Dan Collins On 19.01.2009 @ 11:35

Gee, it doesn't make me sad that Olbermann does that; it makes me sad that people pay him to do it, and others lap it up.Comment Posted By Dan Collins On 6.09.2007 @ 18:18

As for the proportions of black on white, versus white on black crime; common sense should inform you that whites outnumber blacks by seven to one. THEREFORE THE POOL OF POTENTIAL WHITE VICTIMS VERSUS POTENTIAL BLACK VICTIMS IS ALSO SEVEN TIMES AS LARGE. Random chance, with absolutely no racial bias involved, would mean that a black criminal is far more likely to come upon a white victim, than a white criminal upon a black one.
It's amazing, though, that one seventh the number of whites can commit so many crimes. I mean, the pool of potential assailants being so much smaller, and all.Comment Posted By Dan Collins On 12.06.2007 @ 13:53
The DA said that what they did was evil, but not a hate crime. Because, you know, as bad as evil may be, it's nothing compared to racism.Comment Posted By Dan Collins On 11.06.2007 @ 19:17
Well, it's time to put a small army at the disposal of updating Greenwald's wiki to include the term, "(multiple) iGlentity politics."Comment Posted By Dan Collins On 25.07.2006 @ 19:34
