If you want to know why Stephanie Grace believes colored folks are genetically predisposed to be dumber than your average white person, it’s probably because of this playlist someone found on her iPod and secretly forwarded to the PostBourgie e-mail account. Don’t ask how we got the e-mail. Just know that we got connections. But Read More

BitchPhd‘s M_Leblanc, guest-posting at TAPPED, on the deficit of empathy in the legal profession: The hyper-intellectual, logic-focused law school environment denigrates feelings. Even when the issues were deeply personal, we were supposed to regard classroom and extracurricular discourse as purely academic. This mentality goes beyond the confines of the university. I am reminded of the Read More

[cross-posted from TAPPED.] Confession: Every so often, I go to Subway. I don’t like Subway sandwiches, and don’t even really regard them as subs.

[via.] This comment leapt out at my while reading the NYT’s scene story on Arizona’s SB 1070, the state’s draconian new immigration law. …Ron White, 52, said he felt a sense of relief that something was finally being done about “the illegals” — whom he blames for ills like congregating on the streets, breaking into Read More

I have to admit, I hadn’t watched Treme until last night. It’s not because I didn’t want to watch it, it’s because I really really did. I’ve never started watched a David Simon show as it unfolds, but rather in a months-long Netflix binge that makes the whole thing more like reading a book than watching a Read More

Searching for the best analogy to Arizona’s new immigration law, James Fallows came up with a doozy: Communist China.
