A letter to the editor and a professor I missed
 
Today's issue of the student paper of the University of Pennsylvania discussed my new book The Professors: The 101 Most Dangerous Academics in America and the three Penn professors in my book. The article can be read here. My response is below:

Daily Pennsylvanian
University of Pennsylvania
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Dear Editor,

    Your reporter asked me why three Penn professors were in my book The Professors: The 101 Most Dangerous Academics in America. I told her that Regina Austin teaches that black people don't have to obey the law because they are black, that Michael Eric Dyson teaches that Tupac Shakur is a "Great Religious Thinker," which is in my view practicing consumer fraud on Penn students, and that Mary Frances Berry has an endowed chair with no scholarly credentials that would qualify her for the position. The response of Ann Matter, the chair of the Religious Studies Department, to these observations is to insinuate that I am a racist for making them. The statement is sufficiently anti-intellectual to qualify her for inclusion in my book.

Sincerely,

David Horowitz
