It is hard to understand Prof. Halls glorification and idolization of Aristotle. He was an arrogant sexist who believed women were weaker, less intelligent and lived shorter lives than men without also taking into account the fact that women were cloistered in the home, not educated, not allowed to exercise, treated as property by their fathers and husbands, and forced into marriage and childbirth by the age of 13 or 14. He believed that sperm contained the entire person and that women only were a vessel to nurture the seed. If he was such a brilliant observer, how did he fail to take into account the fact that children resemble both parents, and often the mother more than the father? He also believed that slaves were human tools, barely above animals in intellect, should be treated as subhuman, and deserved their status. His views benefitted aristocratic white males like himself and justified male rule in the household as well as in the state. He also believed that the sun, stars, a

This guest was clearly presenting a case for protecting white males. I am for providing more opportunities for black males and females, but see that white females (aka feminists) benefit from this gender inequality argument. I am appalled at her undertones of negative comments that suggest that blacks may be genetically inferior to white and Asian males, and the old standby argument that blacks are just "lazy." Blacks have been systematically erased from the American education and job systems over hundreds of years. This country owes the black community millions for the unpaid slave labor that has created white wealth. Somebody please tell me how white males are suffering when the majority of high paying white and blue collar jobs are held by white males with white females a close second? Asians tend to own their own businesses...boo hoo, as they cry in their condos and Mcmansions!
