Question: Is Reason Magazine's Michael Moynihan Related to the late Daniel Patrick Moynihan?
WWW--Who was Daniel Patrick Moynihan? In case you don't know, the late senator had a deeply-rooted fear of Black people, and Black women in-particular. His 1965 report, entitled "The Negro Family: The Case For National Action," still rankles those familiar with it.
There are the apologists, but it's hard to get away from the fact that Moynihan blamed the social problems of Black Americans on a female, matriarchal trend in families. For those who still believe it--tell it to Obama and the Black Middle Class. Some of them had single-parent families headed by mothers too. Oh, and most of the American populace under 35. What was wrong with Daniel Moynihan?
Most American men have a deep-seated fear in being penetrated by Black men, so what gives with the late senator? There's an element of sexual intimidation there, and it is wrong. Not morally. Not factually. It is simply wrong, like a platypus or a Black Republican. We're all still waiting for that epochal moment when Alan Keyes implodes up his own ass.
