Ivy League prof uses racist slur about Ben Carson–but that’s OK because he’s GOP

From my latest blog post for the Independent Women’s Forum:

Prof. Butler: He’s a black conservative, so I get to say what I like

Campus Reform reports:

Ivy League prof. calls Ben Carson a ‘coon’

University of Pennsylvania Professor Anthea Butler called Presidential Candidate Ben Carson a ‘coon’ for claiming that people have the right to display Confederate flags on private property.

“’If only there was a ‘coon of the year’ award…’ Professor Butler tweeted in response to another tweet linking to a Sports Illustrated article in which Carson was quoted defended the right of NASCAR fans to fly Confederate flags during races.

“’Swastikas are a symbol of hate for some people too … and yet they still exist in our museums and places like that,’ Carson observed during the event in North Carolina with NASCAR legend Richard Petty. ‘If it’s a majority of people in that area who want it to fly, I certainly wouldn’t take it down,’ he added, noting that NASCAR races are held on private property.”

Nice going, Prof. Butler! I thought the Ivy League was supposed to be classy.
