Taboo and Not Taboo at Elite Universities

| 1 Comment
David Bernstein has this post at VC regarding what is and is not taboo in the halls of academe. Among the "not taboo": "Being a convicted cop-killer on death row, with strong evidence of guilt." I doubt many of C&Cs readers need to follow the link to know who that refers to.

"In short, what's taboo on elite American campuses is ideas and actions that many people find offensive, but only if those ideas and actions happen to conflict with the felt commitments of left-wing ideology."

Bernstein underreports the evidence of Abu-Jamal's guilt. "Strong", no. "Overwhelming", yes.
