My son was building a house for a family in the New Orleans 9th Ward during spring break.

And before he went off to college he knew that strippers were bad news and to treat all women the way he would want his sister to be treated.

“My son was building a house for a family in the New Orleans 9th Ward during spring break.”

Nice. (By the way, the lacrosse team contributed more to Katrina relief than any other Duke team.)

“And before he went off to college he knew that strippers were bad news and to treat all women the way he would want his sister to be treated. “

If there’s a team party and you’re a sophomore, you go to the team party. Seligmann didn’t even want to go. Once he arrived, he stayed very briefly and left immediately after the “dance” ended.

For that he got a year of hell, public death threats, thrown out of school, and a lot of notoriety he never wanted.

His father was raised by a black family, making his putative grandparents black. But even that didn’t spare him from being
savaged as a racist, in the 21st century’s answer to “Scottsboro”.

Nevertheless in all that he never answered back and showed a great deal of class (as they all did) in how he responded.

Yes, we know, you’re perfect, and your children are perfect.

You are full of it, and that’s saying it kindly.

So if a smoker is falsely accused of arson and has his name dragged through the mud in a year-long bogus politically-driven investigation, he should learn to stop smoking?

And prior to this incident, Reade Seligman spent his spare time doing volunteer work in Applachia and poor areas of New York (page 14, Until Proven Innocent). There had been an all day party going on in the house, mostly consisting of beer pong and people playing washers. Reade had been out all day playing golf and showed up at the party that his Lacrosses team was having. He did not know that there was going to be strippers at the party. There is a time-stamped picture of Reade sitting on the floor shrinking back with a look of distaste and then he left, about 20 or 30 seconds after the strippers started “dancing”.
So a kid went to a party, didn’t know there were strippers there, and left as soon as the strippers started dancing, and you think he deserved it. Wow.
