The Washington Times wrote:Biology professor Bret Weinstein was berated by dozens of students outside of his classroom Tuesday morning for refusing to participate in an event in which white people were invited to leave campus for a day. Now, he says police have told him to hold his classes off campus due to safety concerns.
Mr. Weinstein was confronted outside of his classroom Tuesday morning by dozens of students who demanded he apologize or resign for writing an allegedly racist email.
His email took issue with a “Day of Absence & Day of Presence” demonstration, for which white students, faculty and staff were asked to leave campus for one day. He wrote: “On a college campus, one’s right to speak — or to be — should never be based on skin color.”
A video of the confrontation, captured by Mr. Vincent, shows Mr. Weinstein attempting to reason with dozens of students who routinely shout him down, curse at him and demand his resignation.
“The students, fearful for their lives, began retreating towards the library and ultimately ended up in the Trans & Queer Center/Unity Lounge, trying to stay safe,” Mr. Vincent said in a Facebook post Tuesday. “The white students were then delegated to spread out throughout the library floor and watch for police potentially surrounding the building.”
Mr. Bridges promised, per the demands, to institute a new student conduct code, to improve the quality of faculty evaluations and to enact an annual sensitivity training for all faculty, staff and police that emphasizes the eradication of anti-black racism.
Fearful for their lives? The campus police aren't even allowed to confront them.
I can't be the only one who thinks this is getting ridiculous. It's like inmates running the asylum. The students are dictating how their own education - and that of other, paying students - will take place.
This would be all well and good if there was some kind of quantifiable injustice. But a single line from an e-mail that's about as color blind as can be? No way. Regardless, their demands for segregation also amuse me. For those that may not know, this sort of thing is becoming more common in higher education in the US.
From lists of words people aren't allowed to use to segregated courses, it's all just madness to me and as an (admittedly small) employer, makes me wonder why I would ever want to hire someone with degrees from these schools.
