The "anonymous" white supremacist Jerry Miller has been spamming us
with his tract on equal employment opportunity as the root of all
evil for about a year now, touting it as a source of ideas for term
papers in the social sciences. In case anyone is actually
interested in what social scientists have to say on the topic, I
recommend the following reading list:
