Syracuse student newspaper fires columnist for calling institutional racism a ‘myth’
The Daily Orange at Syracuse University is keeping tabs on what its opinion columnists say when they’re not publishing in the independent student newspaper.
Say something the editors don’t like somewhere else, and you might find yourself out of a job.
That’s what happened to Adrianna San Marco (above) after the student published a column in LifeZette, the website founded by Fox News host Laura Ingraham. Titled “Why institutional racism is a myth,” the column shares a host of research on police shootings and crime statistics by race.
San Marco cites 2019 research that found “no evidence of anti-Black or anti-Hispanic disparities across shootings, and [that] White officers are not more likely to shoot minority civilians than non-White officers.” (Earlier research by Harvard economist Roland Fryer, who is black, found similar results, although he found higher use of non-shooting force against blacks.)
She’s more forceful when citing figures on blacks representing 13 percent of the population but more than half of homicides and robberies in 2017 FBI data, and that black men are represented among “cop killers” at five times their share of the population:
If blacks represent such a small percentage of the population why are they responsible for a large percent of crime? In fact, the Left’s insistence on discussing race proportions is damning to their argument. …
The idea of institutional racism existing in the U.S. is a myth—and a dangerous one at that.
Daily Orange editor-in-chief Casey Darnell confirmed to Fox News media reporter Brian Flood that the newspaper canned San Marco for her column.
