The other Duke rape case
LaShawn Barber has a must-read post on a Duke rape case that is not getting very much press attention yet. The accused is black and the victim white. The alleged scene of the crime is a black fraternity, not a house occuppied by LaCrosse players.
LaShawn makes many excellent points in her discussion of the differences between the two cases. So far, the mnedia and the authorities are behaving themselves passably well - which makes a strong contrast with their behavior in the more famous case.
If Fox News Channel has its priorities straight, it will book LaShawn for an appearance tonight on Greta, Hannity & Colmes or O'Reilly. She is not only thoughtful and well-informed, she is a passionate and righteous advocate for race-blind justice. When she began blogging, I hailed LaShawn as a major voice. I have not been disappointed.
