So, here I am in bed reading. On line, Yale has sent out an abstract of a "research paper" about how black and Latino people are not doing as well educationally and economically as white people would like to think. White people think black people are catching up with white people fast. But, says the study, blacks are still very far behind in wealth and in income. This, says the "study" is because of the "salience" of racism.

Then there’s a piece in The New York Times about how despite affirmative action, there are still not a lot of blacks and Latinos in prestige universities. This also has to be the fault of racism.

To read more of Ben Stein's article, go to The American Spectator.
