Reached by phone Monday at her home in Redlands, Dunn declined to comment.The article proceeds to provide recitation of the alleged cross-burning (which wasn't necessarily tied to race as much as to alcohol) and a comment written on a bust of George Washington Carver (the small reaction to which might have induced Dunn's alleged crime).
Her lawyer, Gary S. Lincenberg, also declined to be interviewed. But he issued a news release saying that Dunn "maintains her innocence and hopes that this case will not divert attention from the racism problems on the Claremont College campuses."
Articles like the Times piece only provide Dunn with what they want, selling a perception of institutional racism that is not backed by the facts. Having burned the Reichstag and gotten only a court summons for her troubles, Dunn uses a compliant press to blow on the embers.
