Why Have I Discussed Race?

  A READER writes: Your recent post, “Rape and Race,” has produced quite a few negative reactions from people who have been offended at what they feel was implied racism on your part. Their reaction, as far as I can tell, may not have been your intent. However, I feel that they are somewhat justified […]

Rape and Race, cont.

  THE DISCUSSION on the post “Rape and Race” continues here. Elizabeth Wright, a black blogger at Issues and Views, writes: Leave it to blacks and whites, both male and female, to jump to the defense of black men and to rationalize rape.

Dalrymple on the Pope

  THEODORE DALRYMPLE has an excellent piece on Pope Benedict XVI at The Salisbury Review. Addressing calls within Britain’s intelligentsia for the arrest of the Pope because of his alleged role in sex abuse crimes, Dalrymple notes that child abuse is most prevalent in homes where biological fathers are absent and step-fathers are present. He writes:   It follows from this that, if the Pope should be arrested […]
