It Was a Rap Concert, As You Might Expect

"Man fatally stabbed after Verizon concert."

A 24-year-old Charlotte man was fatally stabbed late Friday night during an argument outside Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre, according to Charlotte-Mecklenburg police.

The death, apparently the first violence-related fatality at the north Charlotte entertainment venue in its 22 years, followed a rap concert featuring Lil Wayne.

The fundamental wisdom of John Derbyshire's Rule 10D is illustrated once again.

I think that's the column that got him fired from wherever.

While there are some things that are wrong in what he wrote, section 10 is for the most part correct.

My wife used to teach in a predominantly white, upper class, school system. She noted that when black students were in her classes the entire dynamic changed. There was an edginess of hostility in the room.

She could never quite define it, but it was there and it made the other students nervous.

It's telling that in today's society blacks can move freely in white areas, while whites must fear for their safety in most black areas.

I worked with black EMTs, I mentored many of them. They were mostly as eager as any other new EMT to learn and do a good job. The few that weren't, were problematic because the would never admit to being wrong and would always find an excuse to blame someone else for their failings.

Sounds like a President I know of.

@TOTWTYTR: You're correct, that column got him fired from National Review. He's at least willing to discuss the race issue in an honest way that allows for absolutely no political correctness. I happen to agree with what he says almost entirely.

Speaking of blacks in schools, did you see this when it circulated recently?
