Face it Greeks, you've asked for ridicule [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 25 February 1999
Face it Greeks, you've asked for ridicule Letters to the editor: behrco!12 @ aol.com By Ryan Van Winkle Orange Source Syracuse University First, a little background: A sorority girl wrote a letter to Syracuse University's Daily Orange, complaining about an editorial cartoon the paper ran that portrayed sororitybimbos in tight, black pants. The girl didn't think it was funny and lamented that because she wears letters on her chest, she is a target. I wrote this letter to the paper in an effort to dig the prissy's long nails out of the editors' backs. They didn t print it, so I'm sharing it with you. To the Vocal Greeks: Shut up. You ARE a target. Just like guys who drive Humvees are targets. People who join your society know full well what they are getting into. You did this to yourselves. You joined a stereotype. That's what the Greek system is — a big, ugly, bingedrinking, black-pants-wearing, roofie- dropping, leg-spreading stereotype. It was like that when you joined an...

Hate crimes law would undermine protection of rights [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 25 February 1999
Hate crimes law would undermine protection of rights By Robert W. Tracinski Knight-Ridder Newspapers The gruesome killings last year of two men - a black man in Texas who was dragged along the ground while tied to a pickup truck, and a homo sexual student in Wyoming who was bound to a fence and beaten - ha\c inspired new cries for a "hale crimes" law. This law would make crimes motivated by enmity toward blacks, gays or other protected groups into a special federal offense. The ostensible purpose of such a law is to protect minorities from persecution. The result, however, would be the exact opposite. Targeting those with "politically incor rect" motives undermines the principle of objective law that undergirds our legal system's protection of rights. Criminal law exists to prohibit certain actions - to safeguard individuals against force or fraud. For this purpose. there is no shortage of existing statutes. The accused killers in Wyoming and Texas, for example, are fully ...
