That depends on who has a belt and who doesn't.

It would make sense for a guy like Dyson, a psuedo intellectual if there ever was one, to say such a thing. After all, literally everything this man has gotten in life was principally because of the fact that he mentions his race in every third syllable.

You want a good laugh? Read that mans memoir. a highlight:
“The basic problem with my love relationships with women is that my standards are so high — and they apply equally to both of us. I seek full-blast mutual intensity, fully fledged mutual acceptance, full-blown mutual flourishing, and fully felt peace and joy with each other. This requires a level of physical attraction, personal adoration, and moral admiration that is hard to find. And it shares a depth of trust and openness for a genuine soul-sharing with a mutual respect for a calling to each other and to others. Does such a woman exist for me? Only God knows and I eagerly await this divine unfolding. Like Heathcliff and Catherine’s relationship in Emily Bronte’s remarkable novel Wuthering Heights or Franz Schubert’s tempestuous piano Sonata No. 21 in B flat (D.960) I will not let life or death stand in the way of this sublime and funky love that I crave!”




Oy vey.

I was going to say something along the lines of "an associates degree in a real subject (math, physics, et al)from a community college shows more intellectual talent than a PHD in Sociology from Harvard," but that would be beneath me. I would never say such a pithy thing.

Ever.

Just out of curiosity, since I have never notice that you have criticized the President for not being "race conscious" enough, in fact just the opposite, I would think that Dyson's comments would come as welcomed news. That is of course if you just weren't trolling.
