    He wont answer...just like it was hard to defend ol rand. This one is so far out there, even the hardened racists will have a hard time explaining this one.

    My guess will be "freedom of expression" or something like that? Dude is not exactly very original and will run from this.

    Gross overreaction by virtually everyone involved.

    A lot of people seriously need to stop going out of their way to be shocked and/or offended.

    See, that's what I'm thinking too.


    If they are dressed as Klansmen to reenact the history of how the Klan started, I don't see anything wrong with that. They were making a 'film' for class on racism in America. The KKK is a BIG part of that of course,and it's still a part of America today.

    I think students need to learn about this, among other things.

    Unless there is more to the story, I don't see why she was put on leave.

    I think the students may have taken it too far;
    But to discipline the teacher is overreacting. The KKK is a part of U.S. history and to deny or ignore it is foolish. You can't make history politcally correct, you have to take the good with the bad, as Santayana said "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."

    I attended a community college diversity course that made all the female students dress in KKK garb and all the male students dress in burqas, the course was called 'Gender Bender Studies'.

    The idea was to cure racism by getting everyone to concentrate on their latent sexism.
