Re: “Why are white men turning on women?

Ms.Pandolfi, I think you hit the nail right on the head " the dying gadp of patriarchy". How would any one raised and poised to be a "General" feel when he charges forward without a horse ? Insecurity, isolated, left behind , angry and resentful - and then some.

I think you have offered a very useful analysis . Hope it is taken and used.

Re: “Opinion: A personal take on Watermelongate from a parent who feels a different kind of outrage

To the writer regarding the "absurdity of suing McDonald's because coffee was too hot". Dear Sir, please take the time to read the case the plaintiff was named Stella Liebeck, she suffered 3rd degree burns to her thighs and genital area , after McD's had had over 700 complaints about the coffee served at scalding temperatures in order to save $$ by not preparing fresh coffee. I am not a Dr. but a brief search on WebMD might shed some light on the gravity of such an injury.

In 1964, here in Charleston, I was one of several students to intergrat St.Andrews Jr. Hi, expecting to enter an environment co ducive to learning, we were exposed to assault, verbal abuse, harassment and all manner of psychological attack. To say these AMHS are not racists is contrary to the saying that "actions speak louder than words". Drawing a "Sambo" blackface on a,watermelon, smashing it after playing a team from a predominantly black school, all the while making "monkey grunts", is not racist ?? What next ? Didn't you know - black people just ZLOVED slavery - rapes, lynching, branding, beatings , you name it we REALLY enjoyed it . Didn't they tell you.
