I've got a solution to this. How about the Blacks becoming less "sensitive" over every issue. I belong to a gym full of Mexicans who make fun of my white skin every day, but you don't see me crying for racial sensitivity training. I won't even venture into the realm of rap music...

As a side note, why is it always these bastions of liberal thought that end up in these racial situations.

It's not blacks being oversensitive. Its lefties who make money through intimidation.

Let's see, wonder who's next in line for Worthman's job?

The incident led Bennett College President Johnnetta Cole, an Emory emerita anthropology professor and former Spelman College president, to write a letter to the department urging it to develop a plan "for substantially increasing the number of graduate students and faculty of color."

It's all about jobs. The liberals sit around waiting for any slip so they can try to pry more dollars for their allies. Once you see something like that, you know that "principle" no longer has anything to do with it.

I might add that the professor who used the phrase indeed was in error and needs to be a lot more circumspect with her choice of phrases.

Here we go again. As I'm reading the article, it dawns on me that all you have to do is alter the setting, the names, and the situation and it's the same old story repeating itself over and over with a new title. You want equal rights, quit whining like the rest of us.

two international students attended a campus Halloween party dressed in Afro wigs and blackened faces.

Campus officials are also investigating a clown, a cowboy, and an alien.

Anthropology Professor Carol Worthman used the phrase "like six n-----s in a woodpile" ...

What the heck does THAT mean?

Ah, my Alma Mater. Too bad they didn't undergo a "year of reconciliation on race and diversity issues" while I was there. I'm sure we would have done our part to comply by keeping both Bud and Miller in the fraternity house refrigerator.

I wait for the day when blacks will be as sensitive to the use of the N word from the lips of another black as they pretend to be when they hear it from a white.

The N word, today, is like the "Colored Only" water fountain of 75 years ago. Who uses it only makes a difference to the racist.

We have been shamed by the liberals into believing that the use of blackface is intolerable to blacks. Most of us have accepted that conclusion as did Philadelphia's Mummers who used to march every New Year's Day in blackface. The liberals were indignantly outraged and their running dogs huffed and puffed, demanding the annual parade be halted. The Mummers, in a symbolic raised middle finger, simply changed the color of their face paint from black to green or blue and continued to march leaving the liberals and their black step-n-fetchits looking foolish and petty.

"They hadn't been in the country long," said senior Joel Hall, who wrote the editorial. "I think it was a case of extreme ignorance."

Priceless.

I am currently an Emory student, and I can honestly say that the people who are making a big stink about this don't have broad support among the students or faculty. Even many of the liberals think that this entire incident is ridiculous, as it is.
