10.04.2012 [Sail World] - The first race (Race 4) saw all flights get away with Josh Handa winning the Blue Flight, Emma French the Yellow and Jim Colley the Red. The second race today (Race 5) was a bit of a disappointment as the Blue Flight got away before a major wind shift
Earlier this month, in these pages, researcher Jason Richwine wagged his finger at the progressive media for ignoring supposedly simple facts about the relationship between genetics, race and IQ. Suggesting that a left-leaning media finds these facts offensive, he accused us of scientific illiteracy, immaturity and “emotionalism.” We’re...
Yesterday, I did a post titled "Race, Gender, Politics and Employment Law," trying to link (as I have in the past) issues that are a critical part of the presidential election with the same issues that have been a critical part of the workplace and employment law for a long time. Â In today's New York Times, there's an insightful article that focuses on Senator Clinton's challenges when it comes to the issue of race. While the entire article is worth reading, a couple of things in it struck me. Â When ... [read post]
I've now completed the study of every one of Judge Sotomayor's race-related cases that I mention in the post below. Â I'll write more in the morning about particular cases, but here is what the data shows in sum: Other than Ricci, Judge Sotomayor has decided 96 race-related cases Â while on Â the court of appeals. Â Of the 96 cases, Judge Sotomayor and the panel rejected the claim of discrimination roughly 78 times and agreed with the claim of discrimination 10 times; the remaining 8 involved other ...

Â The answer is no when looking at the history of this country's presidential elections. Â But this is the first time there has been Â the possibility of Â an African-American's election. Â Two things Â are certain. (more…) [read post]
17.08.2012 All in all, these “rollers” added up to approximately 15,000 feet of ascent during the race. Race conditions got up to approximately 84 degrees that day, which normally isn't bad, but I found myself thinking otherwise as I ...
It's been a while since I've addressed the race issue-in politics Â or the workplace. Â But with the Pennsylvania primary, there it is again. Â As noted in the New York Times Â and other publications, race made a difference in the outcome of that primary, and some are now Â wondering Â whether an African-American can get the Democratic nomination or be elected President. Â To spell it out, a sizable number of voters in Pennsylvania didn't vote for Obama because he's black, and it's feared that a sizable ... [read post]
Analysis Two starkly differing views of the contemporary role of race in American politics emerged Â in full view Â in the Supreme Court's Â wide-ranging new ruling on federal voting rights law. Â Both views start with the same premise, but end up in markedly different conclusions. Â Again, the Court is seen to be as deeply divided on the way out of the racial bind Â as the entire country may still be. The opinion deals with an issue that has been considered so difficult that the Court has left it open ... [read post]
