Duke Discovers High IQ!
"You might think that a university whose students were victims of the most notorious fraudulent rape claim in recent history, and whose professors--88 of them--signed an ad implicity presuming guilt, and whose president came close to doing the same would have learned some lessons. ... They also suggest that Duke University's ugly abuse in 2006 and 2007 of its now-exonerated lacrosse players--white males accused by a black stripper and hounded by a mob hewing to political correctness--reflects a disregard of due process and a bias against white males that infect much of academia. ... Meanwhile, none of the 88 guilt-presuming professors has publicly apologized. ... And Ada Gregory, director of the Duke Women's Center, said that 'higher IQ' males, such as those at Duke, could be 'highly manipulative and coercive.' ... 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. ... Also in 2007, Chicago gave an endowed chair to Charles Payne, who as Duke's chairman of African and African-American studies had inappropriately authorized use of university funds to pay for the Group of 88 ad. ... Try imagining a white male professor who had smeared innocent black students enjoying a similar path of advancement in academia today", Stuart Taylor at National Journal, 19 December 2009, link: http://www.nationaljournal.com/njmagazine/print_friendly.php?ID=or_20091219_1261.
Indeeed. The Left discovers IQ when it applies to white males who may be manipulative. Might this also apply to Duke's female students? Or its professors? Duke has become an academic travesty. Chicago should be ashamed of itself for picking up a clown like Payne.
