Black Incitement to Racial Violence gets a Pass

We read:

"The chancellor at N.C. Central University has taken the unusual step of publicly criticizing an opinion column in the student newspaper that advocates violence. The column in the April 18 issue of the Campus Echo bears the headline "Death to all rapists" and rips into the resolution of the Duke lacrosse case, in which three white athletes accused of sexually assaulting a black dancer were recently declared innocent.

Solomon Burnette, a Durham native, wrote that blacks cannot get a fair shake under the current American justice system and should thus stand up and fight, "whether intellectually, artistically or physically." ....

Burnette, 27, is a senior history major and the son of former City Council member Brenda Burnette. In 2000 and 2001, he served a 13-month prison sentence after pleading no contest to charges of robbing two Duke students at gunpoint and then violating the terms of his probation.


A white student has just got to say something that suggests a recognition of racial differences to be in big trouble. If a white student had said anything like the thug above he would be out of the university on his ear by now. Instead all the university authorities did was to tut, tut and cluck, cluck.

One can only hope that the thug above does NOT graduate and get into a position of responsibility. If he did he would make the disgusting Nifong look like a paragon of objectivity.
