Duke prof posts racially inflammatory comment on NY Times story

Strange names, stranger posts

Remember how I said a few days ago about how if there was one good thing to come out of the troubles in Baltimore, New York, Ferguson, and Charleston, it's that it has emboldened the I'm-Not-Racist crowd to let their true feelings be known? Well, enter Duke University poli-sci professor Jerry Hough

Earlier in the week, Hough posted a comment on the New York Times story, "How Racism Doomed Baltimore," a post that he acknowledged making in an email to me.

Here's Hough's comment:
This editorial is what is wrong. The Democrats are an alliance of Westchester and Harlem, of Montgomery County and intercity Baltimore. Westchester and Montgomery get a Citigroup asset stimulus policy that triples the market. The blacks get a decline in wages after inflation.

But the blacks get symbolic recognition in an utterly incompetent mayor who handled this so badly from beginning to end that her resignation would be demanded if she were white.The blacks get awful editorials like this that tell them to feel sorry for themselves.

In 1965 the Asians were discriminated against as least as badly as blacks. That was reflected in the word "colored." The racism against what even Eleanor Roosevelt called the yellow races was at least as bad.

So where are the editorials that say racism doomed the Asian-Americans. They didn't feel sorry for themselves, but worked doubly hard.

I am a professor at Duke University. Every Asian student has a very simple old American first name that symbolizes their desire for integration. Virtually every black has a strange new name that symbolizes their lack of desire for integration. The amount of Asian-white dating is enormous and so surely will be the intermarriage. Black-white dating is almost non-existemt because of the ostracism by blacks of anyone who dates a white.

It was appropriate that a Chinese design won the competition for the Martin Luther King state. King helped them overcome. The blacks followed Malcolm X. 
Wow. Just wow.
