The United States has an obsession with murder. If you take a quick look at Netflix’s front page or any other streaming service, it becomes obvious from the most popular titles: “Making a Murderer,” “The Sons of Sam: A Descent into Darkness,” “Unabomber: In His Own Words,” “Night Stalker: A Hunt for a Serial Killer” and “The Ted Bundy Tapes” to name just a few.

Editor’s Note: This piece discusses racist incidents and racial violence.
On June 17, 2020, President Vincent Price published a statement addressed to the Duke community regarding anti-racist initiatives, claiming that the University would “resolutely turn our attention toward the mission of anti-racism.” In its December issue, the Duke Alumni Magazine published “It’s Not All Racism,” a letter to the editor that gaslighted anti-Black oppression, shamed BIPOC for their marginalization, and demonstrated overt racism. The author of this letter, Charles Clutts, Trinity, ‘61, argued that “some of it [the plight of minority victims] falls on the victims themselves.” The two messages espoused by Duke appear contradictory—how, even, could they exist within the breadth of a single institution?

One thing I wish for Duke is that we would embrace a simple principle that could inform and guide our intellectual community, including through painful incidents such as the painting of a Swastika on the East Campus bridge, the hanging of a Noose on campus or other acts of intimidation that visit us regularly. I suggest the following principle for your consideration:
If there’s anything that will entice an alleged war criminal to visit campus, it is the deep pockets of the American Grand Strategy (AGS) program. Most recent on their long list of controversial speakers is former national security advisor, John Bolton.
A little over a week ago, a swastika was spray-painted onto Duke’s East Campus Bridge. Hopefully you’re already aware of this incident. After the hate crime occurred, I attempted to process via Gen Z’s unhealthy coping mechanism—online.
As many of you have become aware, a swastika—the infamous symbol of hate and bigotry—was found painted on the East Campus tunnel last week. This space is commonly used by students and community members to share expressions of peace, love, solidarity and whimsy. While this vile icon was immediately painted over following its discovery and the action was quickly condemned, its impact withstands.
A swastika is serious. When I was twelve years old, a classmate at my Jewish day school drew a swastika in the playground dirt. He was chastised but meant nothing by it. The symbol had been present in our holocaust class and in his WWII video games, but never in our own lives. He knew but didn’t understand its meaning.
A red swastika was found painted on the East Campus Bridge Wednesday around 4:30 p.m and was quickly painted over.

I would not have thought that a Daily Mail article about women’s Tinder profiles was evidence that “the entire modern world equates being well-behaved with being sheepishly reticent,” but this is the point Lizzie Bond makes in her column, “The case for well-behaved women (and men).” She argues that contrary to popular belief, good manners are not “arbitrary and antiquated—and even oppressive—standards of behavior,” but a path to virtuousness.
