IT’S COME TO THIS: A College President Had to Apologize for Saying ‘All Lives Matter.’ “Smith College President Kathleen McCartney thought she was showing solidarity with students protesting racism and police brutality when she sent a campus-wide email with the subject line, “All Lives Matter.” But the anti-racism slogan popular with students is actually the more selective ‘black lives matter.’ . . . Students were furious and offended.”

When you reward people for being “furious and offended,” you get a lot more furious and offended people. Though why the knee-jerk emotions of callow undergraduates are treated as significant is beyond me.
