Former U.S. education secretary William J. Bennett created a firestorm over the last couple of days on his radio talk show. The former U.S. education secretary-turned-talk show host said Wednesday that "if you wanted to reduce crime, you could -- if that were your sole purpose -- you could abort every black baby in this country, and your crime rate would go down." Bennett quickly added that such an idea would be "an impossible, ridiculous and morally reprehensible thing to do." But, he said, "your crime rate would go down." Uh oh. Frankly, if you aborted every white baby right now, crime, statistically, speaking would go down. (That's simple - less people - less crime). But you throw in the term "black baby" and the comment becomes a nuclear bomb that no one can rationally discuss.
