The Duke Rape: Some Sense in the Media?

Finally, a sensible article on the "Duke rape" scandal, from Dick Meyer at CBSNews.com. He even refers to the eerie parallel with Tom Wolfe's novel I Am Charlotte Simmons mentioned by Steve Sailer a few days ago. Meanwhile, the big news is the e-mail sent out by one of the LAX players (I've learned that LAX is the cool way to refer to lacrosse).

In what is an obviously clumsy attempt at satire, the player outlines his plans for the night after the night in question:
tommrow night, after tonights show ive decided to have some strippers over to edens2c. all are welcome.. however there will be no nudity I plan on killing the bitches as the walk in and proceeding to cut their skin off while cumming in my duke issue spandex.
The e-mail seems to suggest that things didn't quite go as planned at the big bash at the off-campus site, and some bitterness suggesting that the big bash was in fact rather a disappointment - particularly with the girls. There are all kinds of scenarios one could conjure up to explain what might have happened - we'll find out eventually.

Anyway, it should be noted that young Master McFadyen is 6'6", 225 pounds, and hails from Mendham, a rather well-to-do town in Northern New Jersey with a median family income of well over $100k. He graduated from Delbarton, a very expensive Catholic high school. Look at this guy - what the hell kind of scary rich people are we breeding nowadays?

You know, in some stange way, shouldn't the Duke Lacrosse team be praised for their commitment to diversity?

No one is giving them their due for hiring an African American stripper. This is a team where 42/43 players are white.

I can't think of a more astonishing and totally unforced demonstration of the the lack of any racial preference than a virtually all-white, highly macho and agressive, men's lacrosse team hiring a African American stripper.

Now, asuming the rape allegation is untrue, which I am willing to bet is the case based on many factors including this, than can we say this is also an excellent example of the saying "no good deed goes unpunished?"

"Charlotte Simmons" has been mentioned several times in connection with the Duke incident. But how about Wolfe's other novels? "Bonfire" involves the trial of a well-to-do stockbroker (by an irresponsible and politically motivated media-hound of a DA) more for being white and well-to-do than for the crime he is accused of. "A Man in Full" involves a false (interracial) rape allegation against a star college athlete and the interplay of race and celebrity overshadowing any concerns with justice. How did he foresee this situation so accurately?

Recheck your facts then repost. Until then no one takes you seriously because you mixed it all up.

To the last anonymous - ???.

Perhaps one thing I should point out to those arriving here via a search is that this post was a bit tongue-in-cheek as it followed a more serious post where I attacked those assuming guilt.

When I describe the young man pictured as "scary", I'm being a bit facetious, based on his immense size - something not that common among the wealthier set years ago. I'm sure he is - other than his crude e-mail manners - a fine young man.
