Colleges have become hypersensitive to racial prejudice. Why not anti-Semitism? Larry Summers, former treasury secretary and director of the National Economic Council in the White House, now a Harvard Professor:
It has seemed to me that a vast double standard regarding what constitutes prejudice exists on American college campuses. There is hypersensitivity to prejudice against most minority groups but what might be called hyper-insensitivity to anti-Semitism.
How would a prejudice in favor of Jews (or white men) elevate the self-image of the politically correct, or improve their economic lot? To draw the ire of the PC is a back-handed compliment to one’s economic and moral competitiveness.
