It's been ten years since the Harvard Law School Drama Society last mustered the courage to mock a black member of the Law School community in its annual Parody production.
In 2005, in our live production we included a reference to Professor Charles Ogletree being "stupid" for having hired incompetent ghostwriters who plagiarized from a Yale law professor. Later we elaborated on the point in a blog post.
Since then, no black on campus has done anything to draw as much negative attention, and invite ridicule, as Ogletree did with his use of inept ghostwriters. Until now. Recently two
black law students made themselves famous through their actions
in support of the "Black Lives Matter" movement.
