Hough left some comments under a (yes) New York Times editorial entitled “€œHow Racism Doomed Baltimore,”€ Now he’s in trouble. Being 80 and on leave anyhow, he “€“ to his enormous credit in our age of beta male faggotry “€“ remains defiantly unapologetic.

And I share his exasperation with, well, basically every particle in the known universe and beyond. He writes, in part:

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-existent 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 [statue]. King helped them overcome. The blacks followed Malcolm X.

Hough’s cri de rate has been praised by people I admire as “€œspeaking truth to power”€ and even “€œspeaking truth to Sharpton.”€ But my inner “€œMiss, you forgot to give us homework!”€ pest can”€™t keep her hand down.

Is it really the “€œtruth”€ to claim, as Hough does, that “€œIn 1965 the Asians were discriminated against as least as badly as blacks”€?

This guy says no, and, well, he wrote his 1967 doctoral dissertation on “€œThe Mississippi Chinese: Between Black and White”€ and I didn”€™t. Just sayin”€™.

Yes, it’s disgraceful that Hough and Block’s respective academies aren”€™t defending them, but no sane individual could have expected otherwise. (See “€œthe history of the world…”€ above.)

But had either man forgone a gratuitous and unfunny “€œjoke”€ in one instance, and a vaguely dubious generalization in the other, their respective cases would have been molecularly much closer to Kevlar.

To paraphrase another All About Eve line: We right wingers need to dot our “€œi’s”€, cross our “€œt’s”€—and fasten our seatbelts, because it’s going to be a bumpy night for what looks to be a long time yet.
