  • Duke’s Curtis crisis

    K.C. Johnson writes a devastating column for the Pope Center for Higher Education Policy today. A few highights: On March 29, she emailed fellow Durham activists expressing outrage that defense attorneys had (correctly) stated that no DNA match would occur to any lacrosse player. “The self assurance,” wrote Curtis,…

    You’d think the “adults” at Duke would be wiser to rape hoaxes and “hate-crime” hoaxes by now. Remember this? At Duke University last November [1997], a group of students hanged from a tree a black doll bearing a sign that read “Duke hasn’t changed.” They also covered…

  • Politically expedient “rape” is more equal than real rape

    This post revisits one of my initial ones from last year concerning the now-dropped allegation of gang rape against Duke’s lacrosse team: [W]here have these demonstrators been? The last year for which there are data, 2004, there were 91 rapes reported in Durham — where was the…
