The senior conspirator at The Volokh Conspiracy has two posts you ought to read:
1)"Self-Hating [X]s". I've used the phrase"self-hating ...." I believe that there are"self-hating [X]s". Given my judgment of my fellow Methodist Republican men, George W. Bush and Richard Cheney, I might even be accused of being a self-hating Methodist Republican man. But you ought to read Volokh's careful delineation of the circumstances in which the term"self-hating [X]s" ought not be used. He refers to two very different figures who've recently been accused of self-hate: George Soros and Michelle Malkin.
2)"Islam". This one responds to a post at Bjorn Staerk's blog. It has been much discussed, by Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit, Gary Farber at Amygdala, Ted Barlow and Belle Waring at Crooked Timber; and Michael J. Totten. It's good to see reasonable people on the net, left and right, rejecting ignorant generalizations.
