Today’s midweek newsletter for paid subscribers responds to Mike Masnick and Ken White on the issue of cancel culture. I cite numerous examples and ask one central question:
To me, the point is: why? Why are there so many examples of people being fired, being shunned, and/or being rendered non-persons because of innocent, well-intentioned actions or statements? Why are there so many examples of overreaction — reactions totally lacking in any and all common sense — in response to issues of race?
Plus, a follow-up on the issue of whether KBJ will recuse from the Harvard affirmative action case. She will recuse! I guessed wrong.
