White men still can't jump
South Florida Sun-Sentinel | Submitted by: Bald in NJ
"After looking at your website, I at first was appalled by the outlandish rhetoric that was used throughout it," wrote Keith RC II, who identifies himself as a black student at the University of Virginia.

At first glance this seems like a mockery of the black culture and made by ignorant people, however, it also seems like a mockery of white culture and its ignorance and constant quest to be 'hip'."

Jamaica Gleaner | Submitted by: Son of Benway
"By night, it is teeming with erotic fervour as ladies of the night trade their wares, drug addicts loiter and vagrants grab space to lay their heads. By day, it is a haven, charting a course for the poor to obtain legal representation in criminal and civil matters... It is the tattered old building which houses the Montego Bay Legal Aid Clinic... 'The building is being used nightly as a house of ill-repute for prostitutes and pimps. Whenever the staff arrives there on most mornings they find condoms in the office.'"

The economics of spanking
Slate | Submitted by: SeMeN SPeRmS
"He found that if you're a kid in a $6,000 a year household, you probably get spanked every six weeks or so.
