The Duke Lacrosse case of 2006 is one of controversy, racial issues, and even social class issues.  At the heart of the highly publicized case is an all Caucasian male Lacrosse team and an African-American female woman in a rape case. Due to the various race and social class divisions that were wrapped around this case, it is unavoidable for many to dismiss the fact that the players (upper-class citizens) had access to great lawyers and more funds than the accuser.  However, this particular outlook is somewhat of a double-edged sword in that while the upper-crust players may have access to more power, they are also immediately reversely discriminated against for the very same reasons.
