Dya remember the Duke lacrosse rape story a few years ago? The one that cost the team a whole season and got the coach fired? Front page news it was.
Well Crystal Mangum, the stripper who falsely accused three Duke lacrosse players of rape in 2006 has been charged with murder. Her boyfriend up and died after she allegedly stabbed him. A lot.
It made page B 14 of the New York Times. Back in '06 the paper adopted her case as a political cause, and a columnist accused the players of "white privilege" even after it was clear they were innocent.
Racism cuts both ways.
