Tragedy of degeneration

Thomas Sowell describes The larger tragedy, the tragedy where intellectual integrity goes out the window and people are harmed.

The larger tragedy is what this case revealed about the degeneration of our times and the hollowness of so many people in “responsible” positions in the media, in academia, and among those blacks so consumed by racial resentments and thirst for revenge that they are prepared to lash out at individuals who have done nothing to them and are guilty of no crime against anybody.

The haste and vehemence with which scores of Duke University professors publicly took sides against the students in this case is just one sign of how deep the moral dry rot goes, in even our most prestigious institutions.

This example illustrates both the academics’ bias and the racial stereotyping that is prevalent but opposite to the ‘common knowledge.’
