The analogy assumes far too many facts not in evidence.

a) You'd have to find a white guy brain-dead enough to walk around in a black neighbourhood (like Magnolia or Desire Streets, in NOLA, for example), at night, alone. There aren't any.
b) They'd have to find the black man (or Loch Ness monster, more likely). Looooong gone.
c) They'd have to find the body of the white guy. Burnt well past description, possibly dismembered, then burnt.
d) They'd have to find witnesses in such a neighbourhood. Bwahahahahahahaha...
e) The police would actually have to come into such a neighbourhood to attempt to investigate. In many cases, for many reasons, even funnier than (d).

I've only visited the South a few times (mostly Charleston and NOLA), but it is a very strange and very segregated place, to me.

Hi. I'm new here.

I am a long-time DU lurker, first-time DU member. I'm currently not a member of any other online forum.

I am a 49 year-old single, white, Canadian male, currently employed in the horticultural / agricultural / construction industries.

I am fairly well-intentioned. I like all plants, most animals, some people, travel (the act, not the industry), cooking of pretty much all nationalities and ethnicities (but the healthier, the better), trades of all kinds, fine and efficient automobiles, sports (but especially hockey, of course), old movies, intelligent and respectful public discourse, cool tools, some useful and efficient technology, literature, common sense, jokes...I like a lot more stuff than I dislike, but I don't much like lies or intellectual dishonesty, overemotionality or histrionics in public debate. I am a real fan of objective, well-written, reasonable and lean arguments and the people I have often read here who make them. I like folksy sayings and Old Wives' Tales, too.

I like diverse opinion and the graceful or even clumsy expression of opinion - that's one reason that I'm here. I'm not overly satisfied with the ethics or behaviour or any one, particular political party currently, but historically I most often consider myself more liberal than conservative, politically. Not by all that much, though. Sometimes, I can be a little too stiff and wordy. I can handle correction and criticism, though.

My username is meant in jest. I have far too many agendas for any of them to be hidden (at least not well-hidden, or for too long). I hope to like some people here and learn some things I would't have learned otherwise. I ask a lot of questions about a lot of things.

I'm very happy to finally join DU.
