Let's (not) talk about race (contd.)

Having suggested, yesterday, that it is poison to mix race with politics, I am reminded that politics and race are also routinely intermixed with education. More poison.

David Beito calls my attention to events at Grand Valley State University. Beito's post suggests that Professor David Leidig at GVSU could benefit from some instruction re free speech and free inquiry. Such as: OK to disagree; not OK to censor; not at universities; not at universities in the U.S.

Alas, episodes like this are all too common. Exposing them is a full-time necessity.
