I do remember hearing about the bar incident. It was disappointing to me, but I'm still a huge fan of his music. I have discussed this a number of times but when "New wave" first came out it was a revelation to see people with even more "nerdy" personas than me such as David Byr...

gee, and we have been thinking autism type 1, 2,3 alone is labeling. Wait'll they get done with this one, they'll have at least a hundred sub groups!! ! (cynical and metaphorical speculation) I wonder if they dropped the Asperger's due to the man's history. I don't see changing the labels as produc...

It is an anti imperialism song. At the time it came out I had not heard of the expression “white n****r” and it was shocking both to hear both “n****r” and “white” attached to it on the radio. Even then I understood the song was anti imperialistic and thought those lyrics were his attempt at being “...

A Long Overdue Response to Campus Antisemitism Last week, Carol L. Folt, president of the University of Southern California, released a letter to the University’s Jewish community in which she promised “specific new actions to . . . combat antisemitism” at USC. This isn’t the first time President F...

I think Jews are hurting themselves more than anyone else by such commemorations. Especially Jewish men. It’s not very masculine to commemorate ones defeats. If Jews wanted to be proud they would be better off remembering King David rather than Anne Frank. Both commemorating historic disasters and ...

I was wondering what was behind this ASAN’s Equity and Strategic Plans . Not being there I can not tell if ASAN is a racist organization or a combination of some racist things happened and hypersensitivity. It may be that their internal differences are too big to solve. The movement today is way big...

Why MLK? Could the government have been worried he'd be the first black president? I honestly don't know

Toronto’s ASD Band wants others on the autism spectrum to know: ‘We can do anything" It takes a lot of gumption to name your band after your own neurodevelopmental condition. But the four members of the ASD Band — the acronym stands for Autism Spectrum Disorder — wouldn’t have it any other way...
