If they'd rather die, they had better do it and decrease the surplus population.

Via Steve Gilliard we find out that the Washington Post's new bloginator Ben Domenech that I mentioned below seems to have a wee bit of a problem with the poor. Specifically: he doesn't much like them, especially if they happen to be black.

Gilliard replicates a long quote from neoconservative Richard Neuhaus that Domenech had posted without comment to Redstate:

People who are poor and black are a drag on society. We would all be better off if there were fewer of them. Since we have, with little success, spent trillions of dollars over the past several decades trying to make poor blacks non-poor, it is time we recognize that there are more efficient means of eliminating the drag.


These are the views of a paid writer of one of the nation's premiere newspapers, a paper that broke the Watergate story. Simply amazing.

Odd. I suspect we've spent more on ultra-rich whites in order to make them more rich. But none of them are a burden or a leech on society. Unless they become president.

Every so often the corporate media gets a bit more honest than they intend to. This is one of those times.
