    Does anyone have the heart and courage to state why this highly qualified women is stepping down as Dean of the University of Maryland-School of law?
    Is there one among you that has the intelligence to tell the readers of this website why this great woman is stepping down or do you stay silent in fear that if you speak up it will jeopardize your fake alliances you have with the dominant culture?
