Sad Moments for Dartmouth

Beyond the negative campaigning to which I referred the other day, the lowest moment in the campaign against my candidacy was reached by Dartmouth’s Black Alumni Association (BADA) in this excerpt from a mailing to the College’s official list of African-American alumni:

BADA.National@Alum.Dartmouth.ORG]

Sent: Tuesday, April 06, 2010 7:24 PM

Subject: BADA Wants You to Vote in the Trustee Election—Last Chance!

Note that we MUST stop Joe Asch from being elected to the Trustee Board. He has demonstrated blatant racism and cannot even garner the respect of his own class.

BADA members would have been identified by Dartmouth Undying’s extensive telephone polling in 2008 as among the reflexive supporters of the administration.

Shortly after the above message went out, President Kim sent an e-mail to all BADA members urging them to vote. For reasons known only to our new President, he did not send a similar e-mail to all alumni.
