A while ago, Obama’s “senior adviser”, the unelected Valerie Jarrett, spoke out (on Obama’s behalf, and apparently with his blessing) against therapies intended to change sexual orientation. Obama wants to ban these therapies, arguing that they’re psychologically harmful. My immediate reactions were: Where and when did he get his psychiatric degree? And, what about freedom of choice?

I asked 28-year-old Zachary Lewis about the absence of older men. …

“There ain’t no more ‘Old Heads’ anymore, where you been? They got big numbers or they in pine boxes.” In street syntax, that meant long prison sentences or death.

As I walked through my old streets, it was filled with nothing but black young women, children and teenage boys. It was as if an alien spaceship had come in the night and spirited all the older black men away.
