Our reader Frank has left comments issuing a challenge for Irregular Times and Irregular Times’ readers to provide “ONE EXAMPLE” of evidence pointing to “white privilege” and discrimination against black people in America. Earlier this week, I named and provided references to not one but six research studies that document discrimination against black people in […]
One town’s weather is not the same as global climate.
It’s easy to lose track of the difference because as humans we pay more attention to what we see with our own eyes and pay less attention to what we don’t see. It’s even easier to lose track of the difference between local weather and […]
