    My first roommate in college has a cousin who told me an interesting story. She and her boyfriend got into an argument one night, and she fell asleep. Apparently, her boyfriend was so mad, that he masturbated and blew his load into her hair while she was in a deep sleep. She woke up the morning and found ... well, the hair gel.

    I said, "What did you do when you found out?"

    Her exact words: "Well, nothing, really. I deserved it."

    I still don't know what would possibly warrant that brand of justice.

    This column has been well covered in the Taylor thread on the S&N board.

    Thanks, Hoops.
  9. Black KKK is still ahistorical soundbite gibberish.

    Under Whitlock's column, a Foxsports reader cited U.S. Department of Justice statistics compiled by the FBI that seem to put the lie to Whitlock's contention that the hip-hop culture has raised the level of black-on-black violence. I went to look at the statistical table.

    It shows:

    In 1976, black-on-black homicide accounted for 47.5 percent of all homicides. That's a disproportionate number, near obscene. It shows that the minority black segment of the U.S. population (12.5 percent?) accounted for almost half the nation's homicides.

    In 2005, after a generation of hip-hop/gangsta culture et al., the black-on-black homicide rate had fallen 5.3 percent. Still terrible, still a disproportionate number, but the number suggests that the gangsta culture had no startling effect other than to induce in Whitlock the hallucination of black men in hooded sheets.

    Meanwhile, the percentage of all homicides that were white-on-white rose 1.1 percent. Maybe they had been driven to rage by all that Barry Manilow noise.

    Other interesting numbers: Total homicides from 1976-2005 fell from 14,432 to 10,660 with both white-on-white and black-on-black homicides decreasing about 25-30 percent.
