The Rot At Duke -- And Beyond

by Stuart Taylor Jr. - December 19th, 2009 - National Journal

Duke's rules define sexual misconduct so broadly and vaguely as to include any sexual activity without explicit "verbal or nonverbal" consent, which must be so "clear" as to dispel "real or perceived power differentials between individuals [that] may create an unintentional atmosphere of coercion" (emphasis added).

The disciplinary rules deny the accused any right to have an attorney at the hearing panel or to confront his accuser. The rules also give her -- but not him -- the right to be treated with "sensitivity"; to make opening and closing statements; and to receive copies of investigative documents.

The revised policy, among other things, shows that Duke is still in the grip of the same biases, indifference to evidence, and de facto presumption of guilt that led so many professors and administrators to smear innocent lacrosse players as rapists (and as racists) for many months in 2006 and 2007.

America has become an overtly racist nation, but not as many think - against blacks. Blacks and the black community have become such a pack of racist bigots that they are pathologically unable to see how their own rage blinds them to their hypocrisy against whites. A large part of the white community has been brain washed to agree, or at least suffer in silence.

This article explains more clearly than anything I have seen the blatant white hating racists on the college campuses. The article ends with "Try imagining a white male professor who had smeared innocent black students enjoying a similar path of advancement in academia today."

I have a better suggestion. Try imagining a nation where white has not become an insult and where blacks can get away with the most egregious insults to whites with absolutely no consequence. For instance, how about a nation where the President cannot insult an entire community of police officers with the claim they are "stupid" and the majority of the nation does not defend the action?
