resigns read the headline, at least as it appeared in the Drudgereport. Of course, as with much of the media these days, that’s not quite right. Turns out that Dr. Karla Holloway of Duke actually resigned as head of a committee. Wow, what a leap of faith she has shown her poor, struggling black students. Right.
â€œThe decision by the university to readmit the students, especially just before a critical judicial decision on the case, is a clear use of corporate power, and a breach, I think, of ethical citizenship,â€ says Dr. Karla Holloway, the William R. Kenan Jr., Professor of English and Professor of Law at Duke. â€œI could no longer work in good faith with this breach of common trust.â€
Oh, really? Or was it because of this:
Professors like Holloway â€” who had condemned the players â€” are now facing criticism for prematurely assuming the playersâ€™ guilt and, ironically, making racist charges against the White players.
Methinks the latter. I think I’m a fan of this science professor:
â€œThe faculty who publicly savaged the character and reputations of specific menâ€™s lacrosse players last spring should be ashamed of themselves. They should be tarred and feathered, ridden out of town on a rail and removed from the academy,â€ he wrote.
Perhaps we could convince him to work on some of our two-faced politicians while he’s at it.
