Dartmouth Dons the Hair Shirt
Ed. As usual, a
first rate piece by John Hinderaker.The
hypocrisy of the left is boundless and at least as slapstick humorous as Buster
Keaton on his best day!

As educational institutions across the country wrestle with their ties
to slavery, Dartmouth College is taking a closer look at the darkest corners of
Every lib should own one
The college plans to launch a “historical accountability” project this
summer, which aims to better understand how marginalized groups, including
African-Americans and other underrepresented students, have been treated since
college was founded in 1769 by Eleazar Wheelock.
Sure, let’s catalog
the transgressions of past generations! Despite being located in the mountains
of New Hampshire, Dartmouth (or someone associated with Dartmouth) no doubt had
some connection to slavery, back in the day. And how about Native Americans?
Dartmouth was founded to educate Indians, so what are all these wealthy white
kids doing there?
I had thought we
might escape from future breast-beating confessionals when the college dropped
the name of its athletic teams, which had been the Indians for generations. Now
they are just the Big Green. But no such luck.
In a special twist,
Dartmouth’s historical revisionism project will be put in the hands of
undergraduates. That will ensure a proper historical perspective, I am sure.
Of course, slavery
isn’t the only possible source of delicious guilt:
Other potential projects could include Dartmouth’s first female
students after Dartmouth became coed in 1972, transgender and gay students
prior to the shift and the treatment of Asian students during World War II.
Thank you sir, may I have another?
Hey, here’s an idea:
how about looking into the treatment of Asian students–or, more to the point,
Asian applicants–today? Like other selective colleges, Dartmouth no doubt
discriminates against Asians in the application process, while discriminating
in favor of other ethnic groups, like African-Americans and Hispanics. If we
are going to talk about institutional racism, we don’t need to go back 200
years. We can examine the incoming Class of 2022.
But don’t worry, that
won’t happen. Dartmouth won’t want to do anything radical, or anything that
might actually bring about change.
A wise man once said
something about logs and specks in people’s eyes, but I forget the exact quote.
