I don't see anything that indicates that she is "filled with hatred for white people". Why was she not suspended. Possibly because she accepted her error and apologized without any of the usual excuses of hedges.


I didn't care what he said and I don't care what she said. People are entitled to their beliefs. I though about whether I think someone who has biracial parents, such as Obama is really black or white, and I think it is their call. I know however in the past, in the US and other countries also, if you were part "colored", you were colored. My family is very mixed, Asian, Hispanic and Jewish and it just does not seem to matter.
Col Lang, I hope you have a very happy and healthy New Year.



i have watched her quite a lot. Her attitude is filled with snide derision of white people and white society. She is, of course, a product of that society. pl

I think when people make such comments it is often out of a sense of envy.

I personally find the Romneys a very attractive and lovely family; and I am Beige.


What university is that acceptable conduct at? Did she not learn civil conduct in all the decades she spent in academia including those years spent earning a Phd? It sheds new light on her being denied tenure at Princeton.




The Duckman apologized as well and quickly. BTW, the old argument that only whites can be racists because they have the power obviously does not apply to her. pl


I feel any race can be racist. As Col Lang has said many times, it is all tribal.

I listened to an NPR piece today that said Prof Harris Perry's Mom was a devout Mormon - just like the Romney family . I have known many Mormon's - my debate partner in high school was LDS - , none of them have appeared to be as racist and as filled with snide vitriol as Professor Harris Perry .


Harris-Perry is your typical venomous socialist, who also thinks that children belong to the "community" and parents should get over thinking their children belong to them.

Sir, you asked why she hasn't been suspended? Well as Orwell put it: All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.



"you asked why she hasn't been suspended?" It was a rhetorical question. pl



I'm still trying to work on recognizing when you're being ironic.


WellI have never watched her that I know, so you might be right. What I detectis a hostility to her and not to him, which is not in itself objectionable. But his apology is pure slime. He regrets the words used and other people's misinterpretation of them. That is not an apology. For what it is worth, I find his statements fairly mild for a white southerner raised largely before the civil rights movement got traction. But they are what they are, and in his mind they clearly still stand as spoken.
