OK, I enjoy Fred Reed's columns. Sometimes they're off the wall, but that's mostly to irritate the nattering nabobs among us. This week's column, while questionable, does raise some interesting points. White people, by which I assume he means Western Civilization, has made a disproportional share of contributions to our modern world. I keep trying to come up with counter-examples, but so many of them involve other cultures copying and expanding on technologies originally invented by the West. Can y'all help?
