From Jessica at Feministing:
Samhita wrote a post today on the Duke case and she’s getting slammed in comments by some pretty nasty people. I’m going to comment, but I’m in the middle of moving so it’s not going to be long. Samhita has been pretty discouraged lately with disparaging comments and the general racist, sexist bullshit that’s been thrown specifically at her. I already had to ban commenters calling her stupid, etc. It sucks and it’s ridiculous. It would mean a lot if you could show your solidarity in comments (assuming you’re comfortable with that). I’m just emailing the few folks adresses I have on my blackberry, so feel free to fwd on. Thanks so much.
The post is here.
