Suicide has garnered a lot of attention in recent days. As noted in a study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the rate has been rising steadily since it bottomed out in 2000. I discussed suicide at some length in “Suicidal Despair and the ‘War on Whites’” (June 26, 2017). I have updated a few graphs and a bit of text to accommodate the latest figures. But the bottom line remains unchanged. What is it? The “war on whites” is a red herring. Go there and see for yourself.
