"Duke student government president Elliott Wolf told the trustees that, as undergraduates, the most painful part has been discussing their wonderful experiences at the university with others, yet witnessing the talk inevitably shifting to the lacrosse story."
"We have decided the best course of action is not to directly respond to allegations associated with the lacrosse team and further associate the word 'Duke' with the word 'lacrosse,'" he said."
Duke used to like to be associated with the word 'lacrosse'. They had a championship team. They still had one, until they dismissed the coach and scattered the players.
Now they don't want to be associated with justice, the innocence of their students, or the defense of their students' rights against a legal lynching. And they use this as an excuse--that they are trying to disassociate the university's good name from the scandal in the public mind; so for the sake of that higher goal they won't respond to anything about the hoax.
"The Rev. Duane L. Hoskins announced Friday that he plans to run for president of the NAACP Durham branch. "
Until the Durham NAACP cares to explain why it shared a podium with the NBBP and the NOI, where Shabazz was permitted to give the keynote address, and everyone was addressed as 'brother and sister' inside a Christian church (yet where evidently the mandatory criteria for inclusion in 'brotherhood' and 'sisterhood' was the color of one's skin, and not any unanimity of religious belief), I want nothing to do with that organization.
I hoped they liked Shabazz's speech. He calls for the total extermination of all whites, especially Jews, and heads up a certified hate group.
How would a white church that invited the head of the Klan to be their keynote speaker be treated?
Apparently, this is part of a traveling dog and pony show. Mrs. Recall and I were invited to attend an alum event in Washington on November 8. The sorry lot of characters noted in this news article are planning to speak and field questions. Mrs. Recall and I are thinking about going wearing Duke lacrosse t-shirts and hats.
The attitude of Brodhead and his lackeys that there "nothing to see here, move along" is sickening. They already had to dip deep into its waiting list this year and the real hit comes in the next cycle; how many students are taking Duke off their list of schools to apply to because of this debacle? Every student and parent with a lick of sense will hesitate before applying, let alone accepting an offer of admission. I better stop because I'm starting to get agitated again.
I'm going to think about the questions I will ask Brodhead on November 8, any any suggestions are appreciated.
