Duke Professor Defiant After School Condemns Racially Charged Remarks

Fox News, May 19, 2015

A Duke University professor was defiant after the school last week condemned his “noxious” and “offensive” words in a letter published in The New York Times in which he compared African-Americans unfavorably to Asian-Americans.

The school’s rebuke came after a student backlash against Political Science Professor Jerry Hough, 80, whose May 9 letter sought to address racism and the Baltimore riots. Hough said African-Americans don’t try to integrate into society, while Asians “worked doubly hard” to overcome racism instead of blaming it.

“Every Asian student has a very simple old American first name that symbolizes their desire for integration,” he wrote on May 10. “Virtually every black has a strange new name that symbolizes their lack of desire for integration.”

Duke students and faculty blasted Hough last week, and the school told The News & Observer of Raleigh that he was placed on leave and that 2016 will be his last year at the school.

“The comments were noxious, offensive, and have no place in civil discourse,” said Duke spokesman Michael Schoenfeld. {snip}

But Hough, in an e-mail to an ABC affiliate, said political correctness is getting in the way of thoughtful and frank debate.

“I am strongly against the obsession with ‘sensitivity,'” Hough wrote. “The more we have emphasized sensitivity in recent years, the worse race relations have become. I think that is not an accident. I know that the 60 years since the Montgomery bus boycott is a long time, and things must be changed. The Japanese and other Asians did not obsess with the concentration camps and the fact they were linked with blacks as ‘colored.’”

    “…and the truth shall make you free.” Free of a job, in the case of the Duke Mis-administration. Good for the Professor!! Keep speaking the truth!

  • Stick to your guns, Professor Hough.
    If you’re gonna go down, go down swinging!

    • Bon, From the Land of Babble

      He’s already apologizing:

      In emailed statements, the political science professor defended his comments, saying “Martin Luther King was my hero” and insisting he is “strongly against the toleration of racial discrimination.”

      • Praising MLK Jr. is the kiss of death.

        • Bon, From the Land of Babble

          Perhaps he is aware of the hellstorm that happened to Professor James Watson after his 2007 comment about blacks not being as smart as Whites.

          Didn’t matter that James Watson had won a Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, that one comment destroyed everything he’d done previously – including his reputation.

          Didn’t matter that he groveled and apologized. None of that mattered.

          By 2014, Professor Watson had to sell that Nobel Prize “in view of his diminished income after the 2007 incident.”

          Fortunately for him: “The medal was subsequently returned to Watson by the purchaser, Russian tycoon Alisher Usmanov, who stated that Watson deserved the medal and that it was “unacceptable” that he should be compelled to sell it.”

            The Russians are not yet as paralyzed by Social Justice Warriors as we are in the West.

          • Bon, From the Land of Babble

            The Russians dealt with the worst of the worst Social Justice Warriors – Soviets – and know the outcome is tyranny and genocide – directed at them.

            The last time the Social Justice brigade was in charge, 66+ million Russians were liquidated without a trace.

          • TrueNorthFree

            Regarding the millions of white Russians genocided by Stalin, I wonder why we never hear anything about them? No tears are shed for the Russian holocaust victims. Oh yes, because they were white and white lives dont matter.

          • Blackfish

            And because most dolts in the media think that communism would be a great thing “if done correctly.” Presumably that means without starving millions as BOTH Stalin and Mao did.

          • anony

            They were also primarily Christian.

          • Jacobite2

            They are white and they are proud. I’m rooting for them –just like I rooted for Wisconsin in the NCAAs.

          • TrueNorthFree

            White and Proud! Amen brother!

          • Dr. Rieux

            They saw up close and personal the sad fate of a people forced to live under a bunch of collective lies, something we here in the “progressive” United States are now discovering.

          • TrueNorthFree

            Intolerant and stern cultural marxism is now the hegemonic force in our white Western countries. We the people can turn that around with a grassroots movement to overcome decades of multi-cult brainwashing. Check out the “white genocide” website. It is brilliant.

          • He’s 80 years old. He should make peace with who he is and apologize for nothing.

          • tetrapod

            At 80 he’ll be gone soon, as will all the old guard voices who remember what we used to be. We’re inexorably losing our history as a unified white nation to whining coloreds, and diseased feminists and homos.

          • Raydonn

            The Emperors New Clothes, on steroids………….

        • True. The moment a person seeks to clarify or apologize they are toast. What he said is irrefutable. Apology discredits and invalidates him – and his remarks by inference. Stupid idiots!!!

        • Light from the East

          It’s better to ignore MLK all the time.

      • carriewhite64

        That is very discouraging. When will they realize that apologizing and walking back remarks do not work….ever?

      • Ed

        He hasn’t apologized. He’s a liberal just an old school one. Old school liberals had warped world views but at least they got the basic facts right.

  • He voted for Baraq Obama, or claimed to have done so, proudly so.

    Turns out that it was not an inoculation.

    I read his statements, and in one part, which isn’t getting much notice, he notes that the Democrat Party is a high-low coalition against the middle.

    • LHathaway

      Nothing yet has made me a Democrat . . . but you’re saying the Democratic Party is composed of a high-low coalition at war with the middle . . . ? I may seriously consider switching to the Democrats.

      • Spikeygrrl

        If that’s humor/sarcasm, I don’t “get it” (so sorry).

        • LHathaway

          I don’t know. I find I get grief from lower management or middle class types more than I do the rich. I know who my enemy is.

          Middle class types have usually drunk more deeply from the coolaide, also. The rich and poor are at least more open minded. Plus, for some reason, maybe partly to do ‘racism’, I’ve always identified more with (or at least have had more admiration for) for the aristocracy type. It could be, or it seems to me, that NO ONE has any morality left but the rich. The poor often feel bad about being base or being dead-beats – the middle class just are and think that’s just fine. Perhaps they even feel they are ‘down with the poor’. Some part of me reckognizes that from a financial sense it does make more sense to increase wages (and perhaps lower benefits) so that more work. And that we do need a ‘stronger middle class’ but my sympathies lie where they lie.

          AmRen just proves that everyone is a communists. I read more promotion of Marxist economics here than I do anywhere.

          • kpsmith

            I can’t say I can readily recall any articles on this site promoting Marxist economic policies. I guess I will have to be more diligent.

          • LHathaway

            The comments, I mean. Since those who work for the site post at least 30% of the comments (at least they used to, under the old system, by my best guess) posing as outsiders, one could attribute the Marxist comments to those who run the site itself. Now, perhaps they are intending to appeal to every day miseducated readers who wander in here, or perhaps they favor more equal income redistribution, but there is not a comment that goes by that is not blaming the rich or promoting a kind of economic Marxism. It’s really just a regurgitation of actual Marxist literature, blaming the wealthy, but done so by those who claim to be race-realists, where the victims of the wealthy are in this case said to be Whites (although no doubt all races are made to suffer), so I can see this kind of thing appealing to any random person who happens by.

      • Here’s what he wrote:

        This editorial is what is wrong. The Democrats are an alliance of Westchester [County, N.Y.] and Harlem, of Montgomery County [Maryland] and intercity Baltimore. Westchester and Montgomery get a Citigroup asset stimulus policy that triples the market. The blacks get a decline in wages after inflation.

        I think blacks benefit way more than he seems to think, but otherwise, he’s right about the pincher aspect.

        • listenupbub

          He should have said “blacks get a few million make-work jobs.”

        • anony

    When I read that yesterday, I thought it was so cool when he said he was 80, and didn’t give a damn about what people thought of him.

    Leftists absolutely HATE ‘The Truth.’

    But Hough, in an e-mail to an ABC affiliate, said political correctness is getting in the way of thoughtful and frank debate.

    Or as I like to say, we can’t solve our problems until we’re allowed to discuss our problems.

    • Dr. Rieux

      We can’t begin to solve our black problem until we can honestly discuss it, something that our jack-booted commissars are determined we will never do.

      • TrueNorthFree

        Most of those jack boots are worn by brainwashed whites, which infuriates me.

        • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

          I think they should all be forced to live with their beloved blacks. Live in the ghettos, work hard to support them, and then come home to them every night. It’s racist not to!

          • TrueNorthFree

            The cruel irony is that most anti-white cultural marxist social justice warriors actually live in nice, clean white neighborhoods. I am actually starting to believe that anti-whites are mentally ill.

          • tetrapod

            Or else just sheltered and disingenuous.

          • TrueNorthFree

      • tetrapod

        There is no solution to the black problem unless you take away all the artificial supports that allow the failures and misfits to survive.

    • Who Me?

      Which is why the left demonizes Colin Flaherty. The man doesn’t try to explain “why” nor does he offer solutions/excuses for it, he just shows that it DOES exist and shines a spotlight on what the left is desperately trying to keep hidden.

  • DJRicin

    I’m a student at Duke. If it’s any comfort, despite being a liberal campus, the large majority of students are outraged that Hough has received condemnation for his comments. On anonymous forums on which Duke students post (such as yik yak) most students have argued that Hough’s comments are fair.

    There is growing backlash to this PC madness and a growing right-wing on campuses that is more racially aware than we have seen in a long time.

    • TruthBeTold

      Everyone sees the truth.

      The goal of the progressive left is to make speaking the truth a social and political a death sentence.

      I’ve noted here that the current young generation has been steeped in political correctness since birth and yet they still get caught up in making ‘racist’ comments and ‘racist’ actions.

      They know what’s going on. They see it for themselves. They know the message they’re given doesn’t match the realty.

      I took heart a few years ago when a high school student wrote a letter to the editor regarding blacks failing tests to become firefighters.

      He said the same things I say. They take the same classes, they read the same books, they take the same test. ‘If they fail, how is this racists?’

      • Or there could be a bit of the forbidden fruit syndrome at work.

        The more they are told that white people are evil, the more they get curious about that which they are told is evil. Then they find out it’s not evil after all.

      • Dr. Rieux

        The left has never been for free speech. Both the communists and Nazis were leftists.

    • listenupbub

      Yup, young people know that egalitarian individualism is not a great ethic, and not a great source of motivation. They are looking for something new, and they know that the liberals are getting torn apart in open debate on the internet.

      I think there is a small chance for an awakening. However, the social controls are still working very well for the homosexuality issue, and I tend to think that the social controls will work for race issues once the sexual deviance issues fall out of style and the elites double down on race issues.

    • David Ashton

      About time – for the “younger” people!

    • JohnEngelman

      The internet makes it possible for people to anonymously and safely express the way they really feel about racial disputes.

      Whenever there is a racial dispute at least 90 percent of the comments resemble comments you will find on American Renaissance.

      Speaking for myself, when I was a child and teenager I made excuses for blacks. When I was a young adult I got tired of making excuses. Now I am tried of hearing them.

      • Ed

        Very true, you should read the other comments that go with editorial that the Professor wrote in about.

        His comments were pretty mild in comparison.

    • Weisheit77

      • Ed

        He hasn’t been fired and he was already on leave.

        • John Smith

          He is, because he’s stated he intended to retire in 2018, not 2016, on his home page at Duke.

    • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

      Really? I am so glad to hear that as I feared that college kids were hopelessly stupid and utterly convinced of the greatness and moral superiority of blacks/minorities. Yay!

      • If a majority of white college students had some racialist or near-racialist attitudes, how would we know? Do you think they’re going to run out in the middle of the campus quad and scream “white power” from the top of their lungs? Remember, we live in a country were 0.2% of the adult population is bullying the other 99.8%, that being World War T.

        These sorts of things we have to glean from anecdotal evidence.

        • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

          Good point, and I hope there’s more than we know of!

  • Luca D.

    I wish he would have added this statement: “Jeez, I thought liberals wanted to have that honest conversation about race.”

    • Dr. Rieux

      By honest discussion they mean mugging whitey with no complaints from him.

      Always begin with the premise that almost all members of the left are either liars or fools and you’ll already be 95% of the way toward understanding them completely.

  • Cid Campeador

    By today’s Zeitgeist the only thing wrong with the Professor’s comments was that they were 100% spot on.

    • Dr. Rieux

          • Dr. Rieux

            Didn’t you get the memo? Being educated in a country whose social paradigm is personified by a black ganger, with his pants halfway to his knees, is also a microaggression.

          • Spikeygrrl

            My late father, a much-beloved classroom lecturer and longtime Head of Graduate Studies in English Literature, is surely rolling in his grave. Until his death at age 84, he was an unfailing rallying point in the University Senate for those dwindling numbers of professors manning the barricades and flinging intellectual Molotov cocktails at those relentlessly pressing for relaxing academic standards and substituting bullying “diversity requirements.”

            I was never a Daddy’s girl in the conventional sense of “his little princess.” I was always a bright and curious young mind whom he treated with intense intellectual respect as well as personal love.

            Goddammit how I miss him.

          • pennawhytmn

            You just exemplified your “white privilege”.

          • Spikeygrrl

            It was a completely unearned honor to grow up with such a parent, if that’s what you mean.

          • Dr. Rieux

            Thank you for sharing that.

            Anyone who knows O tempora! O mores! is most probably well educated.

            I, too, am old enough to have had left-leaning professors who remained, nonetheless, above all scholars and respected honest, intelligent debate, so different than the talentless trash we have now, like Saida Grundy, Angela Davis, or Berenice Dornan and her husband.

          • Spikeygrrl

            Eh. Too bad that folks like us are being systematically exterminated.

            I literally weep when I read Whites here and elsewhere proudly proclaiming themselves uneducated “hillbillies” because being a White hillbilly is barely, marginally better than being a Negro ghetto rat. Seriously, WHERE’S THE DIFFERENCE?!

            My best theory so far — which is not at all intellectually plausible — is that at least a few hillbilly Whites have enough under the hood to change their lives IF THEY WANT TO. But they lack a clear vision of how far they can go, and in what directions.

            (I’ve got a REALLY personal story about that, but this is neither the time nor the place.)

            Yeah … sigh … The same affliction plagues the Negro Talented Tenth. I’ve hired them, and literally NEVER fired them; with the skills my company taught them they easily moved on to high-paid corporate gigs our sexy little Princeton high-tech company couldn’t financially match. I LOVE THEM ALL and wish them well wherever they are today.

    Until blacks in America decide to stop playing the race card nothing will change. We have now come to the point where everyone can feel “offended” or “disrespected” for almost anything. And this “behavior” is subjective, not objective. It’s what the offended, or disrespected, person says it is. And there’s no defense against this.

    • Weisheit77

      You just offended me. I’m pretty sure that was a microaggression with no trigger warning. I’m calling your internet service provider right now.

    • LHathaway

      You offended me. You’re White.


  • ThatWhiteGuy

    I am honestly quite shocked (but happy) that he is standing by his comments and condemning the culture of being overly sensitive and offended.

  • Johann Wald

    I’ve been following this story closely and none of the “news” reports have troubled themselves to mention whether or not Prof. Hough has tenure. If he is in fact 80 years of age, I think this would be a pretty safe assumption. That, and that alone, is protecting him from being fired. Much the same way it has protected Dr. Kevin McDonald, Professor at California State U., Long Beach after he wrote “The Culture of Critique” and related titles.

    • InitialSegment

      Even with tenure, saying these kinds of things can be dangerous to a professor’s career. The administration and the faculty Stalinists might not be able to fire you, but they have all sorts of ways to make your life miserable: denying you promotion, assigning you the worst classes, bad-mouthing you to students, interfering with your funding, etcetera. So while I commend Prof. Hough for his courage, it would be truly impressive, and probably more useful to our side, if he were 40 rather than 80 and risking decades of opprobium for voicing his opinions.

      • Johann Wald

        All true that but to take it one step further, statements such as his are dangerous to anyone’s career, whether it’s teaching, police work or even if one is simply a student. We’re supposed to have free speech in this country. The way it works in reality is “say what you want but I’d better agree with it or else”. I took early retirement and can say pretty much whatever I want, withing reason of course, and not have to be looking over my shoulder as a result.

    • Spikeygrrl

      At that age surely he is emeritus, as was my beloved late father when he passed away at age 84.

      • Who Me?

        He’s 80 years old. The left will just ignore him as much as possible, try to sideline him and say he’s getting senile, and hope he dies soon. The left does NOT have a tradition of listening to and honoring their elders.

    Actually, the Japanese were not really linked with the Blacks as colored. Each school district in the South could decide which schools non-Black/non-White students could go to. Almost always Japanese were allowed to go to White schools. With “Hispanics” the more European, solidly middle class students would go to White schools and the more Indian ones would not. But again it was a very local choice.

    “’Duke University has a deeply-held commitment to inclusiveness grounded in respect for all, and we encourage our community to speak out when they feel that those ideals are challenged or undermined, as they were in this case.’” said Duke vice president for public affairs and government affairs Michael Schoenfeld.”

    Hey Schoenfeld: Were the Gang of 88 who signed the letter condemning the lacrosse boys suspended or fired?

    The “Duke 88″ consisted of 88 Duke professors who signed an ad which implicitly assumed that Duke lacrosse players raped a black stripper, an allegation that proved to be entirely fraudulent. The ad praised protesters who had put lacrosse players’ photos on “wanted” posters, associated “what happened to this young woman” with “racism and sexism,” and suggested that the lacrosse players were getting privileged treatment because of their race.

    From: “Whatever Happened to the Duke 88?”

    No member of the “Duke 88” has publicly apologized. Paula McClain became head of Duke’s Academic Council, the highest elected position for a faculty member. Three members of the “Duke 88” have been hired by other leading universities. Houston Baker was hired by Vanderbilt. Grant Farred was hired then fired by Cornell. The following year it promoted him to director of graduate studies in the African-American department. The U of Chicago gave an endowed chair to Charles Payne. Pay had inappropriately authorized the use of university funds to pay for the “Duke 88s” ad.

    • Bon, From the Land of Babble

      He already has:

      In emailed statements, the political science professor defended his comments, saying “Martin Luther King was my hero” and insisting he is “strongly against the toleration of racial discrimination.”

      • Cato

        He’s not backing down. He’s telling the truth about who he is (anyone 80 years old is very likely to have gone through that period of optimism where following MLK seemed the right thing to do). But he has become disillusioned, like many of us, and is “speaking truth to power.”

        Where he differs from most of us, is that he refuses to consider that there are heritable differences between blacks and Asians–he thinks that it is all a matter of trying.

    • Evette Coutier

      Neither were blacks.

      “They were not put in “concentration camps.”

      If you mean death camps, no. If you mean open air prisons that they were not allowed to leave then yes, they were put in concentration camps.

      • Blackfish

        I think the current term is “internment camps.”

        • Lexonaut

          That’s the polite term, yes. Concentration camps means the same thing and is in fact better because it implies getting all the [whatever]s into one place or a small number of places — concentrating them.

      • Ethnic Japanese were also allowed to leave them, provided they did not return to the west coast. That would have been problematical for those who didn’t know anyone farther east. Getting a job would also have been difficult, given the extreme hostility to Japanese, and that was long before we knew what they were doing to white POW’s, whom they actually treated quite a bit better than Chinese. Any Chinese POW taken by the Imperial Army was basically a dead man; only a few survived.

    • John Smith

      The British invented the modern concentration camp for Boers.

  • nicholasstix

    My understanding is that Hough was already on leave to write a book, not that the university placed him on leave.

  • TrueNorthFree

    Since he is 80 hopefully he has a nice pension because being saying stuff like that publicly results in terrible consequences for academics. (except for Black academics like Saida Grundy who publicly state anti-white filth on Twitter with zero consequences)

  • AFlaVet

    Is the professor talking about these quaint convoluted “names”? I axe you.

      How could you omit “La-a”, pronounced LaDasha, “cuz da dash don’t beez silent, nomesayin”.

    • You forgot Shitavious.

  • Rob

    Too bad that he took many years to wake up to the negro problem and he did help destroy white society with his liberal views and brian washing numerous kids that studied under him.

    • LeonNJ

      You see this often, sadly. Once someone retires or is just too old to care from academia, politics, or whatever, then they come out and say the truth. It’s always too little too late at that point to make any difference. Keeping a pension is more important.

      • Rob

        Nope do not fall for that in this case. Maybe today’s young white libs are worried about their pensions. Here he has been teaching since the early 60s before PCnesss took hold. He even used to give his students then to read the book ‘Black Like me’. He could have stopped the PCness before it took hold, but let the brainwashing of students take place so that he could look cool supporting civil rights.

      • Lexonaut

        “Once someone retires or is just too old to care from academia, politics, or whatever, then they come out and say the truth.”

        Guilty as charged, except that I didn’t really learn the truth till I discovered this site three years ago.

        • anony

          Curious… what “truth” did you learn only three years ago?

          • Lexonaut

            Two things …

            1 – That the Denver mayor’s office had been keeping secret the fact of dozens of slashings of the faces of white citizens in downtown Denver as a gang initiation right — put a white person in the hospital with permanent scars It took two talk radio show hosts and a former prosecutor to get the mayor’s office to agree that they had known for some time what was going on.

            2 – The occasional publication on AmRen of per capita crime-by-race statistics, and the regular publication of IQ-by-race statistics. It’s taken me 71-68 = 3 years to fully deprogram myself, and it would not have happened without this site.

          • anony

            To what do you attribute this deep “programming”?

            And, thanks for your sincere reply.

  • Jacobite2

    While subjecting this guy to the PC bastinado, did anyone, anywhere claim that anything he said was untrue? If the truth is racist; then racism must be true.

    • If it was simply untrue, Dr. Hough would be mocked as a crackpot, rather than vilified. The War on Noticing requires vigorous crackdown on the truth.

      • Jacobite2

        2 + 2 = 5.

  • bubo

    I see now that he’s 80 years old. He obviously doesn’t need his job and can tell the truth without fear of losing everything. Blacks are just nowhere near as smart, capable or viable a race as Asians or whites. Reality tells us so.

  • B.E.L.

    I just find it interesting this guy gets crucified, while that assistant negras professor from Boston University said way worse things about white people and were told that she is just exercising her freedom of speech.

    • anony

      Never look for logic on the left.

  • pwnful truth

    We’re absolutely screwed. First it seems that it takes 80 years for the average intellectual to become wise to the whole race sham, and still then they harken back to the MLK / civil rights garbage as if it were noble and just, which it wasn’t. It was as dastardly as what we have now, albeit without all the monetary support it gets from the new set of millionaires created artificially by rap music and professional sports, and the new artificial middle class of black government employees making an average of 90k to do absolutely nothing. MKe no mistake, MLK and “civil rights” is the foundation of lies upon which Obama and his race hustlers stand today.

    I digress. Today no white man dares speak out until he is at death’s door, and only then will he speak if he does not have children or grandchildren in a position to be harmed by his words. If this professor’s son were on the make as a politician or public figure, he would have surely kept his silence to the grave.

    To a man, every white person in the country fears professional ruin should he speak the truth, even privately. In my early twenties I lost two separate careers over race; in one case I opposed an openly racist and (also openly) incompetent black superior, and in the other I was a little bit too candid in discussions with fellow whites in noticing that the blacks got away with doing nothing -something everyone noticed. What i failed to understand was that whites will often seize any opportunity to destroy another white person’s career for “racism,” thinking in vain that it will innoculate themselves against the charges of racism in the future.

    Some Japanese went to Italy as GI Joes.
    The camps may have been as much for the protection of the Japanese from vigilantes as it was to prevent Japanese sabotage and west coast invasion help.

    • Xanthippe2

      They were because of fears of physical assistance with a Pacific Coast invasion. Perhaps there were VERY rare assaults, but if so I think I would of heard of them. There was common use of the word “Jap” but this was because of its use in media/military propaganda. Most Whites are too polite to call someone they know (or even don’t know) rude names.

      And keep in mind there were no modern surveillance techniques and hardly the resources for human intelligence on each, or even most, Japanese.

  • Raymond Kidwell

    I wonder why a black lady working for a college can say “white males are the problem” and other hostile remarcks and it’s not a big deal. It’s like “don’t say that publicly”. This guy said nothing hateful at all and he gets grilled by the same media and school system. I wonder what would happen if he tweeted “black females are the problem”. I would imagine he would catch more heat for it than the white male tweet.

    • The term “lady” in that case is grotesquely inappropriate.

      • Jack Burton

        Subhuman is more appropriate.

  • BernieGoetzFan

    No they were not. They were in holding camps were nobody was killed and they were treated very humanely. Germans and Italians were also put in these places.

  • Xanthippe2

    In the Western US only. One could get out of it by moving east (many young people went to college in the eastern US) or by joining the military which many Japanese young men also did.

        I doubt if it will be a full stop.

  • Jack Burton

    Unless blacks convert to Islam, they usually have an Anglo last name, even if their first name is some bastardized Ebonics nonsense, so they’re about the same Asians.

    I prefer that blacks keep using those absurd names, makes them very easy to identify in a list.

    The vast majority of Asians I know are not integrated, they’re very insular in their ethnic groups and businesses. They love to sell to whites, but will almost never buy from whites. They’re very selfish and withdrawn.

    This whole article is bullshit, let them fight it out among themselves, I don’t care.

    • The Skeptic

      Jack, this might be true for 1st generation Asian-Immigrants, but the 2nd generation is with a few exceptions well integrated into main-stream, middle-class American culture: 1) Low crime. 2) High intermarriage rate. 3) Unlike most African-Americans and some Latinos, there is no distinct dialect.

  • John Smith

    Our white-hating she-gro “professor” at BU strikes again, against a white rape victim:


  • John Smith

    He stated he was retiring in 2018, so he leaves two years early.

  • John Smith

    What about those hateful, bigoted statements by the “Group of 88” Duke profs. who condemned the white lacrosse players with no evidence? Those seem far more “noxious” and “offensive.”

  • John Smith

    We have some pinko race realists here too.

    hmmmmmm does he not have the same First Amendment rights as the college professor who said white males are a”problem population”?
