... Darwinism and anatomical measurement, enabled white colonists to justify their belief in their own racial superiority.

THE 'YELLOW PERIL': In the early years of European Imperial involvement within Africa, the idea of a male white settler having sexual relations with a native woman (this was later to become known as the 'yellow peril') was considered to be perfectly acceptable, even in Britain. In some cases this was sanctioned to the degree that ...

... a life and death issue. To have the AIDS disease is at present a sentence of slow but inevitable death. I've already lost one friend to AIDS. I may soon lose others.

69: Time To Put Sexual Abuse In Pe
... inaccurate information they have been fed in the media. From a reading of headlines in Ireland in the past few years, a visitor from outer space might be excused for assuming that all the child sexual abuse in this country had been perpetrated by Catholic clergymen - and by no one else. In fact, out of the current aggregate of 9,017 priests and brothers in Ireland (North and South), 27 priests and 11 brothers have been convicted of child sexual abuse since the 1980s, this representing a ratio of four per 1,000.

For me, the most shocking statistic to emerge from a conference on child sexual abuse in Athlone earlier this year was that one third of all child sex abusers are male adolescents under the age of 18.
