IUPUI is located in Indianapolis. So is the Indianapolis Star. The Star has not published a word about this incident, and has not run this column by Ms. Parker though it often runs her columns. Rather than defending the freedom to read, the Star helps to keep the lid on this story, which has mostly been kept alive by bloggers. It's also likely that the Star managers have relationships with the IUPUI administrators who threatened Sampson, and that they share the racial-sexual identity politics which led to this fiasco.

Let it be clear: The Indianapolis Star is no friend of free expression.
