After the Bourbon Monarchy was restored to France at the end of the Napoleonic Wars, the Bourbons were described as having “learned nothing and forgotten nothing.” As a result, there isn’t a Bourbon Monarchy in France today, there’s a Fifth (as of today) Republic.
In 2006, Duke University suffered what we call the “Duke Rape Hoax”, in which a black stripper accused the white lacrosse team of raping her. According to K. C Johnson, Duke is run by latter-day Bourbons.
Short thread on @chronicle exposé, published yesterday, on @DukeU's current TIX system. Whatever else can be said, the piece's frame that the university's post-2007 policy changes in any way responded to problems ID'd by lacrosse case is unconvincing.https://t.co/Jph4sKSAgX— KC Johnson (@kcjohnson9) January 7, 2019
One feminist theory of why Duke was particularly dangerous—it has lots of high IQ males:
For instance, the @MrMikeVasquez piece doesn't mention the first post-lacrosse policy change--a dramatic expansion of Duke's definition of sexual assault, justified on grounds, per adm'r, that Duke had "cream of the crop" of sex offenders. https://t.co/iRi9G8xPvU pic.twitter.com/5Vr6T6zFq6— KC Johnson (@kcjohnson9) January 7, 2019
