Cruise far away from Haiti to alleviate your guilty conscience!?

Going to a beach resort in Haiti, leaving money in the impoverished country, is “unethical”.  Feasting, overeating and being obese in neigboring Dominican Republic, or anywhere else in the world is ok.  Political correctness going overboard.

Blogs and message boards have been full of outrage and disgust at the idea of tourists frolicking in the sun while bodies pile up in Port-au-Prince and quake survivors struggle to stay alive. […]
“… How can you sit there and say, ‘Waiter, bring me a drink’ while I’m on a private beach … knowing that 100 miles away, people are dying,” Jones said.

Of course, instead of talking, maybe these do-gooders should all embark to Haiti as volunteer helpers and donate all their wages to Haiti development. This would cause a positive impact.  Being obese and overeating in Paris, Los Angeles or Kansas is ok. Out of sight, out of mind.

I am so glad CNN talked to a sensible intelligent person, so I don’t need to say more:

Haiti’s plight wouldn’t improve if the cruise ships were diverted to another nearby island and pretended the disaster wasn’t happening, agreed Chris MacDonald, a senior fellow at Duke University’s Kenan Institute for Ethics and a philosophy professor at Saint Mary’s University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. He also writes The Business Ethics Blog.

“The cruise ships aren’t hurting anyone, in fact they’re doing some good, they’re bringing some help,” MacDonald said.

People who believe it’s disrespectful for tourists to enjoy themselves so close to a disaster zone should realize that the alternative of avoiding the area wouldn’t be more respectful, MacDonald added.

The proximity sets off our gut reactions, but it doesn’t seem to make any real moral difference, he said.

Mullis pointed out that the Dominican Republic — Haiti’s touristy neighbor on the island of Hispaniola — is also close to the disaster but is doing business as usual.

Drunk girl cries rape after consent

Women gets herself silly drunk. Agrees to have sex. Passes out during sex and later cries rape.

A JUDGE has questioned if a man who had sex with a drunken woman after she passed out should be “marked for the rest of his days as a rapist”, describing it as a “technical rape”. […]

The court had heard Sloan met his victim at the PJ O’Brien’s pub and suggested they have sex across the road.
She agreed and the two began to have sex but she fell asleep during foreplay – which Sloan continued despite her being unconscious. Both were drunk at the time, with the woman being “heavily intoxicated”.

Sloan was due to be sentenced yesterday. Prosecutors had asked he receive at least a suspended jail term for his crime. However, Judge Smith said that might not be an appropriate penalty.

Henry L. Gates, Jr., arrest: racial profiling necessary for safety, political correctness discourages neighborhood watch

Higher criminality for blacks over whites and Asians is a fact. Equality of races is a politically correct myth, disproved by science. There are  racial differences in intelligence, criminality, athletic behavior. Hence a black person behaving suspiciously around a house correctly arouses suspicion in the neighbors. Political correctness causes such absurd reverse racial discrimination as police stopping little old ladies in Britain as terrorist suspects, just to avoid accusations of singling out Arab males.

“But I think it’s fair to say, No. 1, any of us would be pretty angry,” Obama said. “No. 2, that the Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were in their own home.

Yes, agree totally with President Obama. A black professor, even if somewhat overreacting and nervous, should not be arrested after proving he is in his own home. Police has more important issues to take care of. But, black police might arrest a white professor for disorderly conduct and the international press would remain quiet.

And No. 3 — what I think we know separate and apart from this incident — is that there is a long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately, and that’s just a fact.” (NY Daily News)

  • In the facts, I agree. Blacks are being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately.
  • In the conclusions, I disagree: rightly so, young black males are proven to have higher criminality then white old ladies. And yes, race differences in intelligence & criminality are proven scientific facts, repressed only by political correctness. Genetics of gender are important too, males are more violent and criminal then females.

I continue to believe … that there was an overreaction in pulling Prof. Gates out of his home to the station,” Obama said. “I also continue to believe … that Prof. Gates probably overreacted as well. “My sense is you’ve got two good people in a circumstance in which neither of them were able to resolve the incident in the way … they would have liked it to be resolved.” Obama about arrest on New York Daily News

Obama is GREAT.

If only Obama also understood research about racial differences, genetically and culturally determined, and thus young Arab males and young Black males deserve disproportionate scrutiny for our good and safety

Peter Singer – The Genius of Darwin: The Uncut Interviews – Richard Dawkins (Video)


pretty shocking topics: from animal rights not to be eaten and slaughtered to “abortion” rights until after birth, mercy killings of babies that get born severely damages.
Singer thinks topics to the end. His main philosopy is minimizing suffering, creating the maximum of happiness. So there is a consistency in his thoughts that one should not kill poor cows, but severely crippled infants should be killed out of mercy.

UK: Police stop and search innocent white people to balance race figures, terror watchdog says

Political correctness going overboard. It just so happens that suicide bombers rarely are blonde white old ladies. But it violates civil rights when black, Arab or Asian muslim males are singled out as terrorist subjects.

He accused the police of wasting time and money by carrying out “self-evidently unmerited searches”, which were also an invasion of civil liberties. The searches, for example, of blonde women who fit no terrorist profile came against a backdrop of complaints from rights groups that the number of black and Muslim people being stopped and searched by police was disproportionate.

Lord Carlile said that police were stopping white people unjustifiably so that official figures would make it look as if they were not singling out black and Asian people under Section 44 of the Terrorism Act 2000. “No police officer has admitted that to me, but I believe that is the case,” he told The Times.

Of course, there is another human rights problem. The problem of innocent white subjects being searched purely for statistical reasons, in spite of not fitting any statistic pattern for terrorists Just for political correctness. That is a violation of their civil rights.
