    "We have accepted Mr. West‘s assurances that these emails are not reflective of his beliefs and values" -- Good grief, what a pathetic statement. If the "beliefs and values" of these men are indeed contrary to what they wrote, they must be pitiable, craven messes of human beings, so utterly desperate to get a laugh out of crass pals that they‘ll say anything at all, no matter how hateful or tasteless. If it‘s true it doesn‘t really reflect any better on their judgment than owning up to having these beliefs and values would.
