Personal opinions regarding current areas of activity[edit]

  • On the issue of race and crime: As noted by Dr. Anthony Walsh, professor of criminal justice at Boise State University, in his book Race and Crime: A Biosocial Analysis (2004:35-36), the argument that racial bias in the current criminal justice system is responsible for the disproportionate number of African Americans being arrested and imprisoned for violent crimes is, simply put, a red herring. No one attempts to account for the hugely disproportionate number of males arrested relative to females by claiming the existence of sexist, anti-male bias, just as no one attempts to account for the hugely disproportionate number of young people arrested relative to old people by claiming the existence of ageist, anti-youth bias. To do so would be ridiculous in light of the facts, i.e. that males are more likely than females to commit violent crimes, and that young people are more likely than old people to commit violent crimes. Despite this, say that African American males are more likely than any other segment of the US population to violent commit crimes, and you marginalize yourself as a "fringe crackpot wannabe scholar with strong racist sympathies". Go figure.
