Hate Crimes In The Once Great Britain…

Over half the crimes were motivated by racial bias. Of these, almost 50 percent were against African-Americans, about 17 percent were against whites, and about 10 percent were against Hispanics.

Anna Ayers, a student government leader at Ohio University, reported finding threatening messages in the drawer of her desk a few weeks ago.
Ayers, an LGBT student, said the three notes were “hateful, harassing,” according to The Post Athens, a student-run news outlet, and made specific attacks on her sexual identity.
“Senate will never be the same for me,” Ayers told The Post of the notes, the first of which she said appeared Sept. 27 in her desk at the Student Senate. “The friendships will continue to grow, and our successes will always evoke pride, but the memory of my time in senate and at OU will be marred by this experience. We will all have a memory of a time when this body failed one of its own.”

It rained a lot in Broadstairs this bank holiday, so we spent several inclement evenings trawling through Netflix, and came upon the entire output of the BBC’s ‘Two Ronnies’. Quite apart from the brilliance of the Mastermind sketch, the hilarious homonyms in Four Candles, and the sheer silliness of Crosswords on the Train – all comedy gold – the real revelation was in the first episode of the first series: a spoof discussion about Equality. This was broadcast forty years ago, and proves beyond question the validity of Professor Peterson’s argument that the idea of equality of outcomes is a total non-starter; and in Ronnie Barker’s reductio ad absurdum, an extremely funny one. I have searched in vain for a YouTube presentation (those of you subscribing to Netflix can find it easily) but in so doing, I came across the Ministry of Sex Equality sketch, which is just as hilarious, and just as significant. Watch it here.
