Hate-mail case sends teacher to court today
Michael J Berens
Michael A Smith, a white student at Ohio Dominican College, was arrested for sending threatening letters to 13 black students and faculty. In fact, they were faked by a black teacher, Janice D Hamlet, who wanted to get at the student for using the n-word in an essay on prejudice.
Whereas Smith was initially arrested and suspended without a hearing, the administration took a more lenient line with Hamlet. Her academic career continues, while Smith won damages from his former alma mater.
