He probably neither does well on reading comprehension.  Most of the
names I posted were of individuals who were hired years before The
Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII) which I assume he's referring to.
 Perhaps that's just his auto-response tactic whenever he's faced with
evidence that refutes his claims.

Clearly, Mr. Knight is a prime example of a "patellar thinker" --
thinks with his kneecaps, not always his noggin.

(Question now is:  are his kneecaps more massive than those of certain
feminists we know?)
