Princeton University is guilty as sin!
Institutional racism, like the theorized “dark matter” of the universe, is everywhere, we just can’t see it. But, as scientists speculate, it’s got to be there. What else would account for racially “disparate outcomes.”
No one does mea culpa like academia. So there is the president Princeton University publishing an open letter to faculty and students promising to combat “systemic racism” at his Ivy League school, which is not exactly the Falwells’ Liberty College to begin with.
This is why we love U.S. Attorney General Bob Barr. His Justice Department quickly responded to Princeton’s virtue-signaling president.
“You said ‘racism and the damage it does to people of color persist at Princeton . . .’ and that ‘racist assumptions . . . remain embedded in structures of the University itself.‘ Are you saying that the college’s assurances of equal treatment before the law “may have been false”?
The Wall Street Journal reports that Justice “has asked Princeton for a spreadsheet identifying each person who may have been subject to discrimination and warned that colleges found to violate Title VI civil-rights protections could be fined and forfeit federal funds.
“The serious, even shocking nature of Princeton’s admissions compel the Department to move with all appropriate speed.”

Demonizing the police
In today’s WI State Journal, syndicated columnist Leonard Pitts Jr. tries to deflect Black on Black crime by contending that “is at least sometimes punished.” Pitts asserts that “police-on-Black crime” is seldom punished. Pitts’ mistake is assuming that such incidents were a crime. His list of Black police “victims” includes Freddie Gray of Baltimore. Six police were charged with felonies in that case — three of them black. After majority Black juries and a Black judge in four cases did not find guilt, charged were dropped against the other two.
Michael Brown of Ferguson MO? An extensive investigation determined that, trying to evade arrest after having just robbed a convenience store, Brown tried to wrest a police officer’s gun. “Hands up, don’t shoot” was an urban myth. Eric Garner? After a local grand jury refused to indict, FBI investigators and federal prosecutors determined that charges should not be brought in the case. The federal review was helmed by Barack Obama’s attorney general, Loretta Lynch.
In other news, two killed, 14 injured in gunfight at Rochester NY party. Police not blamed.
