Over at blackprof.com, they're using it as a soapbox to scream charges of racism. Right. Too bad none of the profs are math profs.
After today's negative DNA tests, the Duke player's parents are claiming innocence.
Robert Archer, whose son, Breck, is a member of the lacrosse team, said the test results only confirmed for parents what they already knew.If my son and his pals hired strippers to come to their pad and dance for them, "innocent" would not be a word I'd use. "Swine" might be a better one. Or how about "the kid of mine who will now be paying for his own college tuition because he just dragged the family name through the gutter."
"I know the kids on the team and I know they're innocent," said Archer, of East Quogue, N.Y.
No one in the article has interviewed the dancer's parents. The one in the article was a student from North Carolina Central University. It's not like she was some poor, bedraggled, little waif who was picked up on the street, starving to death with no options. She sounds just as pampered as the boys. She's another one that needs to work her way through school. And if she thinks she can do that kind of work, she can kiss the inheritance goodbye.
Hugh Hewitt and Dennis Prager just got finished tut-tutting about the whole affair, lamenting that college wasn't teaching these boys morality. Well, duhhhh. It's not likely that they came to college with any. Both Dennis and Hugh talk about the kids coming from privelege. So what? Since when did money imply morality? Just look at what daddy said about his little tiger's innocence above.
Both of them ought to talk to their Salem Communications colleague, Michael Medved on the state of morality in the popular culture. After all, it's hard out here for a pimp.
