A friend just told me about an experience he had teaching at an Ivy League university that sums up a lot of the problem with American education nowadays.

One day he went into his history class and began lecturing with a long and spirited defense of slavery. The students were amazed and appalled, asking “How can you say such things?”

Let me interrupt here to make two points. First, none of the students apparently seemed to think he might not mean what he was saying, which tells how much they have become used to hearing only what has already become pre-digested “truth.” Second, the professor is an African-American. Of course, if he wasn’t his talk would probably have ended his academic career right there.

Read the whole thing.
