Racial disparities in bankruptcy filings
Re: The Stark Facts of Race and Bankruptcy
Am I missing something, or is this so-called examination of racial disparities in bankruptcy filings nothing more than typical socialist hand-wringing?
The whole reason we have this “problem” is that years ago some moron convinced a bunch of other morons that people who didn’t deserve credit should be given credit. One fig leaf for this ridiculous position was the racial make-up of those unworthy of credit. Now that these unworthy have demonstrated once again why they are unworthy of credit, the morons have convinced themselves that there is some racial aspect to the defaults!
Thus, the moron position is that while whites at first withheld credit from non-whites due to racism (that is, not wanting them to get ahead), NOW the same whites who made available the credit demanded by the morons (and much of the goods and services purchased with that credit) are acting out of racism to ensure that non-whites are relieved of their financial responsibilities to white institutions, so that whites can once again subsidize non-whites (that is, not wanting them to get behind). Brilliant! The best part of the whole thought process is that continued subsidies and access to undeserved credit further infantilizes non-whites, making them ever-more dependent on morons for future “help” in overcoming “racism.”
In other words, the “racial” component of this “problem” is entirely due to the initial, race-based actions of the morons in charge of this insane behavior. These race-based actions arise from racism on the part of the morons, who believe that the white man’s burden is to support the non-white, no matter the cost financially, socially, or morally.
In a free society, you have equality of opportunity. In a communist society, you have equality of outcomes (except in the cases of those who are “more equal” than the rest of us). If you want equality of outcomes, please feel free to move to a more socialist country: Leave your hands off what’s left of my freedom, please.
A few years back, we were told that non-white minorities were not being granted access to credit to buy homes the way whites were. The solution was to mandate that lenders give loans to non-whites.

We visited the Tusayan ruins today. The lie to the east of the main scenic portion of the Grand Canyon, and are said to have been inhabited by a group of Indians for 25-30 years back around 1065. The ruins consist of a couple of layers of the local rock, with some sort of mortar holding them together. It’s not clear whether these layers and/or the mortar are original, nor is it clear what happened to the rest of the rock (and mortar) that would have been needed for the walls. However, the visitors’ center shows a wonderful artist’s rendering of what the place looked like “back then.” Seeing as how the buildings are gone and so are the inhabitants, you have to wonder how they can be so certain.
