Ironic Quote of the Day
Benjamin Todd Jealous
To the naïve black American, such as the head of the NAACP here, racial profiling is worse than the crimes the profiling seeks to prevent or solve. The microscopic width of his vision is astounding.
How about this for an explanation? Blacks in America are the most murdered and the most incarcerated because young black males are murdering other black males at rates far in excess of their representation in the general populace, and they are getting caught. That black criminals are incarcerated in such high numbers is precisely because people are judging them on their actions regardless of skin color. It appears to me that Mr. Jealous is totally unaware of how deep in denial he is and how internally ironic his paragraph is.
γνώθι σαυτόν, I always say.
