…I learned from reading the title of her original article.
Update: BAWWWWWWWWW! Seriously? SERIOUSLY?? She makes a fact-free assertion (while implying that it’s backed up with facts) that is as baseless as Gov. Bobby Jindal’s ridicule of volcano monitoring just before Icleand blew up, but without even the saving grace of schadenfreudy goodness. Seriously, I don’t know the state of Black Studies departments today, but I’m informed enough to know that arguing for their removal based on evidence that you explicitly refuse to read is intellectually incompetent at best. What the hell is wrong with these people that they are so bound and determined to reward idiocy?

Despite what her pal James Taranto at the WSJ says, Mrs. Riley shot herself in the foot with her article titled “The Most Persuasive Case for Eliminating Black Studies? Just Read the Dissertations.” Now this provoked a backlash, but an unnecessarily complex one in this cranky critter’s humble opinion. My first question upon seeing Mrs. Riley’s post was “did she actually read the dissertations?” Fortunately, an answer to my question was forthcoming: no, she didn’t read the dissertations (5th paragraph). Sadly, Mr. Taranto leaves out the fact that Mrs. Riley’s title itself is dishonest, let alone the rest of her opinion piece.
