    What have you read of his? I don't know his work as an economist very well, but when he dabbles in sociology, which is my field, he's not terribly good -- he should stick to what he has his degrees in - economics ...

    IOW, it depends on if a Conservative uses it, much like Uncle Tom; if a Libbo says Uncle Tom, it's ok. A Conservative? It's racist.

    I already know how the Libbos play the racialist game.

    I've read quite a few of his editorials. When I was living in Crowley, Louisiana, the local paper carried his editorial in the Sunday paper.

    IOW, he should know his place? How tolerant of you...
    I don't often change my signature, but this was just too over the top to let anyone forget with what this country is up against...

    That's not what I said. Please, tell us you're smarter than that. If you're not, please, let us know and we can stop wasting our time with you.

    I should've added that I read Ethnic America and Race and Culture by him, since this was his attempt to do some sociology or anthropology ... not terribly compelling work, but judging from your posts, you'd like them ... good writer though ... but it's not his field ...
