We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I taught medical students for 15 years, many of them black. Almost all the black kids who made a success were either African or West Indian. They did not have this pathology of victimhood. My wife has had two black physicians. One was African (Uganda) and the other is Jamaican. My dental hygienist was an Ethiopian Jew. One of those rescued by Israel in the Ethiopian war. She grew up in Israel. She also does not understand American blacks. She has a white Jewish husband and gets hate stares from black women when she is out with him.
