  •  the counter-example (0+ / 0-)

    of Chris Dorner basically destroys the argument of all the white-guilt proponents who claim that we're racist because we call white murderers/perpetrators of bad things "intelligent" and focus on the individual.  Dorner wasn't believed at all to be anything but a highly-trained intelligent lone wolf. And this counter-example will forever put the radical left-wing sociologists in a bind.

    Chris Dorner was basically treated like a white guy, because he was educated, well-read and politically active, and was not expressive of "gangsta culture", which goes against the "black America" narrative.

    Maybe that speaks to your point though that race really isn't about physical appearance, but the social artificial construct based more on culture.

    Deficits don't matter, jobs do.
