Why the Palestinian “refugees” are not refugees

Sol Stern has written the best brief account I’ve ever read of the origins of the Palestinian “refugees.” It shows the change over time of the way the story is presented in the west, as the truth that was understood at the time the “refugees” were created has become a tissue of lies.  It’s called […]

This story shows how stupid it is to think skin color is an important category. From the article: Africans make up a small but growing part of the black population in metro-Phoenix, which limits opportunities for interaction.
