I always thought of Lehigh University as a fairly elite school. Both friends and relatives of mine have attended. It’s not an Ivy League university, but it’s right up there.

Campus Reform wrote of one visiting professor, Christopher Driscoll, who was so moved by “a lecture on the white appropriation of rap,” that he crafted his own version of the 10 Commandments. He entitled them the “10 Cracka Commandments for 2015.”
If your first thought of Prof. Driscoll is – what an a**hole, I wouldn’t disagree. If your second thought was – this must be a joke – this must be tongue in cheek – you’d be wrong. He is serious. read more
