Much discussion regarding the Bill Bennett comment last week. Opinion Journal had an interesting post about it, but really, I found this nugget cut right to the heart of the matter:

It is a fact that blacks in America have a far higher violent crime rate than nonblacks. MediaMatters and politically correct folks everywhere do not want you to think about this fact, at least if you are white. But which is a bigger problem, the fact itself or white people's thinking about it?

As to the "whys" and "what can we do about it" question - go a few posts down, and go read the Murray article.
