On race, liberals think 'personal truths' top facts. Republicans pull the same stunt with Trump.

I read a gripping story in the New York Times the other day that contained the following passage:

“The story highlights the tensions between a student’s deeply felt sense of personal truth and facts that are at odds with it.”

The journalist, Michael Powell, did a superb job of detailing a chilling tale wherein two staff members at Smith College in New York had their lives ruined over allegations of racism by a Black student.

The university hired a law firm to conduct a thorough investigation and found the student’s accusations of racism were unsupported by the facts. Nonetheless, the student did find her “personal truth” supported by other students on campus who “walked out of autumn convocation in solidarity” and whispered, “there goes the racist” when the falsely accused cafeteria worker walked by.
