Duke's Incredible Disappearing Rape Case

No, this has nothing to do with the collapsing case brought by a stripper against members of the Duke lacrosse team, but instead, a newly alleged rape of a white Duke student by a black male during a party in the fraternity house of Phi Beta Sigma, an African-American fraternity at Duke.

If you haven't heard of it, it may be because the same media, university administrators and Duke faculty that pre-judged the lacrosse players guilty seem to have be purposefully silent, and perhaps for all the wrong reasons.

While I can hope that those who attacked the Lacrosse team have simply learned a lesson on prejudging a case in which the details are far from known, the fact that local media purposefully sanitized accounts of the alleged crime to remove the race of the attacker leads me to beleive we may simply be witnessing a shameful double standard.

If they'd covered this rape case, they'd have to cut time out of the every-persistant, every-facinating Anna Nicole's Death story.

Please don't go crying "Conspiracy" when the media doesn't overinflate an event. Especially when they've done such a good job of proving themselves as shills for a completely different right-wing cause - "See: OMG! Scary Iran!".

If you're going to smear the MSM, have the good decency to smear them for things they actually do wrong.

Oh please! When the local newspaper and television outlets remove the one identifier, in this case BLACK from the description of the suspect that the alleged victim describes, but we find that the exact same wording from the police report that includes the world BLACK is printed and reported outside the local area, what would you call that?

Not a mistake? Unintentional? Everyone else calls it being a shill to polical correctness gone wrong. That's the real world.

Yes, white women have historically been so unfairly persecuted by the police and the press. What a world we live in.

I know when I open the newspaper, if I don't see Black Man Rapes White Woman I usually just junk it.

Honestly, I don't read the newspaper anyway, what with all that evil liberal propoganda. Just good, clean, unbiased blogs.
