Defense of the Bard

These aroused accusations against Shakespeare are obscene (“Badly Bashing the Bard,” Rich Lowry, PostOpinion, March 14).

Othello was black. It was perhaps Shakespeare’s most heroic and tragic performance.

Aaron from Titus Andronicus was black, as was the Moroccan prince, a funny supporting actor in The Merchant of Venice.

These progressive deconstructivists will stop at nothing.

To quote Polonius, who was not black: “Though this is madness, there is method in it.”

Carter’s service

Joslyn Carter, director of the New York City Homeless Services, is a dedicated officer who has always acted with integrity and transparency (“Someone on the Inn Side,” March 6).

That includes stepping back from any involvement with the housing non-profit where her sister Valerie Smith works, despite hints of wrongdoing by The Post.

From the moment Carter was confirmed as a DHS leader, she has been open and forthcoming about the fact that her sister was employed by a nonprofit that had contracts with the city.

Carter fully complies with the city’s conflicts of interest law and absolutely no irregularities have occurred.

The Department of Homeless Services has scrupulously followed the Conflicts of Interest Act in developing these safeguards, and New Yorkers can rest assured that the highest legal standards apply here and throughout the city.

As The Post points out, there is always the potential for corruption in city government.

But unless there are serious allegations backed by evidence, to suggest corruption where there is none is profoundly unfair to two women who have dedicated their professional lives to helping New Yorkers in need.

campus culture

I was impressed by Daniel McCarthy’s “The ‘Diversity’ Gap” (PostOpinion, March 13).

I study at NYU, a notoriously liberal school.

I grew up in a small town with many Hispanic immigrants where I was fortunate to receive a well-rounded public school education that focused on real problems.

This has enabled me to see how far removed many educational institutions are from real problems.

At NYU, every nuance in opinion is quietly discouraged. If you speak up, you risk being shunned by both professors and classmates.

I have a hard time finding places on campus where I can have a civil conversation with someone.

What annoys me the most is that the college experience I dreamed of is almost impossible to find on campus.

I wanted to learn how to debate, learn about different ideologies and feel comfortable discussing difficult issues.

However, the waking campus brainwashing has diminished almost all of that.



Colin’s goals

Once again, Adam Coleman hit the nail on the head (“Colin’s Fetish,” PostOpinion, March 13).

If Colin Kaepernick and his ilk really wanted to help People of Color, they could do something constructive.

For starters, how about fighting for a better education instead of what many children are now receiving?

A good place to start would be to clamor for more charter schools that have proven successful time and time again – a great opportunity for those who cannot afford private school.

But that would not line their pockets or benefit them in any way.
