In a column in the England’s The Independent newspaper, it is reported that leftist American movie director and author Michael Moore (“Roger and Me,” “Stupid White Men,” “Bowling for Columbine”) alleged that black men–being more violent–would have better fought the 9/11 terrorists than the white people on the planes.

[Moore] went into a rant about how the passengers on the planes on 11 September were scaredy-cats because they were mostly white. If the passengers had included black men, he claimed, those killers, with their puny bodies and unimpressive small knives, would have been crushed by the dudes, who as we all know take no disrespect from anybody. God save us from such stupid white men, especially now, when in the US and the UK, black people’s lives are being ripped to shreds by drugs, lawlessness, fear and frightful violence plus the endless circle of racism, exclusion and incarceration. This is not awesome, Mr Moore; it is a calamity, for descendants of slaves unimaginably more so.

Mr. Moore is a disgrace for many reasons. Here is yet another. This is up there with Senator Trent Lott’s infamous recent comments.
