Open Challenge to Professor Jerry Hough

Professor Hough,

   I read your comments regarding the fallout from your recent online comments concerning African Americans. As a Durham NC resident, I take exception to people, such as yourself, taking the liberty to speak with presumed authority on the topic of black culture.

In your comments to WTVD, you seem to be throwing down the gauntlet and issuing a challenge to debate the issue of race outside of the boundaries of politically correct "sensitivities."

As one of the ideological children of Malcolm X, who you referenced in your initial comments, I accept your challenge to a no holds barred debate on race in America.

Having the right to voice an opinion is part of a democracy. But to have ideas go unchallenged is Fascism.
