Author and right winger David Horowitz tried to place this ad in many college/university newspapers. The ad argues against the idea of reparations for slavery. Almost all colleges and universities have refused to run the ad. Brown University is one that did. Almost all that did run it have publicly apologized for doing so.

Without reading the document, I don't know whether the university papers have a point. If they don't, I don't know whether to call them wusses or leftist pinkos.

(Yep, with Bush in office, we can use the word "pinkos" again.)

In any case, reparations for slavery ARE a bad idea. The price was paid in full, in blood, circa 1865.

What I REALLY want to know is whether the smoking ban in the dorms applied to marijuna as well.

Is this the same David Horowitz that did the show "Fight Back" back in the 80s?

Truth be told, African-Americans SHOULD be reparated for slavery. After all, some Native Americans and Japanese Americans were reparated. The problem is...it would be absolutely impossible to track exactly who deserves what.

I keep telling my fiance to apply for her 40 acres and a mule...I wonder if the government would still take her up on it.

Different Horowitz.

I think the true scheme is not to talk about the issue of reparations, but to expose universities as being completely intolerant of a lot of speech. Or perhaps it started as debate but has now turned into theatre.

I forgot one key point about the Brown edition that was published: the entire run was stolen before it could be widely circulated.
