3. A writer at GMP asks questions about the high murder and incarceration rates of black men and asks about genocide and systematic eradication. Has to be read to be believed.
4. Large amounts of student debt may be contributing to a lower birth rate. This is a multi-headed issue, but it’s probably a bad thing that the type of people who self-select for college education are forgoing having children while other people who probably shouldn’t be having children aren’t all that concerned about financial obstacles.
5. Seattle Seahawks punter Jon Ryan speaks out against the anti-gay remarks made by a San Francisco 49ers player. What’s with NFL kickers and their social activism? Not that they’re in the wrong for expressing themselves. But I’m interested why it’s guys like Ryan and Chris Kluwe, the punter of the Minnesota Vikings, who are so vocal on these issues. Is this one way for them to feel superior to their fellow athletes who get many times more glory for being “real” football players? (h/t Pax Dickinson)
