Neomi Rao Wrote Inflammatory Op-Eds In College
Zoe Tillman reports in BuzzFeed News:
In pieces reviewed by BuzzFeed News that Rao wrote between 1994 and 1996 — she graduated from Yale University in 1995 — she described race as a “hot, money-making issue,” affirmative action as the “anointed dragon of liberal excess,” welfare as being for “for the indigent and lazy,” and LGBT issues as part of “trendy” political movements. On date rape, Rao wrote that if a woman “drinks to the point where she can no longer choose, well, getting to that point was part of her choice.”
Yes, she is one of our finest faculty members. Then again, it will be sexist if she won’t get the nomination for the DC Circuit because the guy who she’s going to replace had done worse and still got the seat on the Supreme Court.
