Stupefaction in the African Diaspora

"And the fact is that I would actually rather die by shooting than live armed."

More Guns, Less Crime: A Dialogue - Ta-Nehisi Coates - The Atlantic:

Not only White Liberals, but Black* Liberals can show that peculiar combo of being too good for this world and yet presuming to tell the rest of us how to live in it.

*Since we are dealing with "Ta-Nehisi" Coates...who gives their kids stupid and pretentious names like that? (You know the answer but you're not allowed to say.)..I should have said "African-American", etc. He's a symptom of what The Atlantic has become.

I am cruelly reminded of Scrooge's remark to the charity-seekers who told him of people who would rather die than go to the workhouse: "If they would rather die, they had better do it, and reduce the surplus population."
