Duke's White Lynching Party Finally Over

Finally the last of the trumped-up charges against the three Duke lacrosse players falsely accused of raping stripper Crystal Gail Mangum have been dropped. As became clear long ago, the Caucasian players were deliberately railroaded by prosecutor Mike Nifong so as to help him sew up the black vote prior to an election.
The damage that has been done to the players, their families, and everyone involved in lacrosse at Duke is hard to quantitate, but it's less that what it would have been if Nifong had succeeded in sacrificing their young lives to his political ambitions.
There were no non-political reasons to believe the accuser's story, which was easily disproved, changed several times, and was unsupported by any evidence or witness corroboration. North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper has officially announced that the players are innocent.
No charges will be brought against Mangum. At least Nifong will stand trial for withholding evidence from defense attorneys and lying to the court and bar investigators.
Meanwhile, we're expected to be outraged because some jerk used the expression "nappy-headed ho's." That's what moonbattery can do to a society's sense of perspective.
