In a comment on “The N-word (part 3),” blogger and bubble-butt enthusiast Aaron J. asks: is black child abuse a problem bordering on epidemic [in the Americas]? I’m new to this part of the world so I don’t know. In my native New Zealand there are huge problems with Maori (the indigenous group) child abuse. […]

Another whiny black

Over at Stuff Black People Don’t Like, I discovered that the Web Editor of the Onion (and semifinalist in the Blackest Name in America competition), Baratunde Rafiq Thurston, is crying like a baby because not everyone buys into the conventional liberal “wisdom” that any criticism of a black person is automatically racist. It was during […]

Today on Unamusement Park: the stunning conclusion to our three-part series on the word “nigger” (part one, part two). Stereotype threat The white people we’ve see calling blacks “niggers,” or comparing them to animals, represent the too-small segment of the white population that correctly perceives their existence threatened by people of a certain other race, […]

Our series on the word “nigger” continues from where we left off, today joining forces with “Hatred,” our five-part documentary on the War on Hate (part 1, part 2, part 3), to tackle real live racism!

Or should I say… Unamusement Park’s three-month anniversary slut-tacular. Hurray again! Hurray for sluts! You thought I’d forgotten, didn’t you? You silly goose. This is a day I’ll remember forever, like the […]

Dear “race conscious” black people: Hi there! Or as you like to say: yo, what’s good. I would offer you one of those secret handshakes/gang signs you enjoy so much, but (a) I don’t know any of them, and (b) you are merely a rhetorical device. So: you’re black. African American. Afro-American. A person of […]

“Minorities struggle with racism every single day of their lives,” the sensitivity trainer explains at the start of your mandatory annual Sensitivity Seminar. “You can’t see always it, because it’s so deeply ingrained in our institutions, and your white privilege is blinding you to their suffering. But there’s no denying it: the proof is in […]

My opinion of the modern world is best illustrated by these words. Turning and turning in the widening gyre The falcon cannot hear the falconer; Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold; Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world, The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere The ceremony of innocence is drowned; The best lack […]

My series of short essays debunking race denialism continues. Hopefully you’re not bored of this exercise yet. Someone’s got to answer their arguments, no matter how weak, in case there’s some race denialist or race agnostic out there who’s following the debate and keeping an open mind. Even slightly open. Ajar. Frankly I’d settle for […]
