“You see, I’m from Durham. I know Duke’s magnolia-carpeted campus and gray, gothic towers. …
“I also know that Durham is full of liberal white people who love to get yelled at by minorities and liberal minorities who are happy to oblige them. … When you go to a dinner party in Durham, you bring your moral outrage instead of wine.
“The Duke lacrosse story — hardworking, black, single mother and student allegedly raped by a group of privileged, white rich Duke boys — provided enough outrage to last the dinner party crowd until the next millennium. As a result, many lives, seasons, careers and a successful sports program have been forever tainted by a district attorney who declined to back off the narrative lest he feel the wrath at the ballot box from those whom he denied their white guilt orgy.”
