Duke Lacrosse Scandal: My Thoughts Today
WRAL has a very good article about the Duke lacrosse scandal. It starts off with Rev. Jackson's pledge to have RainbowPush Coalition pay the accusers college tuition even if her claim turns out to be false. Then the story goes into the racial tension caused by this case and whether or not the media coverage is causing it. Durham, North Carolina is a southern city, but is a hub of world commerce with many tech companies, banks and other global interprises located there and in the surrounding area. The area is racially diverse with some of these large companies owned and operated by blacks. The mayor, police chief and many other officials are also black. Yet the media plays up the upper class white Duke boys against the lower class Central black woman.
