Students and staff have been kicked off Washington’s Evergreen State College for a day of white absence, where only non-white people were allowed to attend the college.
None suffered worse than College biology professor Bret Weinstein who was threatened with violence and branded a racist after opposing the event. Weinstein called the event a “show of force and an act of oppression.”
Subsequently, he was harassed by campus agitators who demanded that he be fired. One such student claimed that this threatening behavior was “necessary” because “it’s life or death for us.” Weinstein was forced to conduct classes off campus after the police told him that it was unsafe for him to appear at work.
The Daily Caller reports:
Professor Weinstein’s ordeal exemplifies the disturbing racial trends in education. Students wanted to kick off all Caucasians for a day of symbolic resentment and the scholar rightly thought it was a stupid idea for enforcing oppression. That only made him appear as an evil white racist who deserved to be crushed for expressing dissent.
This incident is, of course, not an isolated affair and campuses all over the country have suffered similar bouts of racial agitation. Several universities have witnessed demands from students for segregated housing so minority students can live without the terror of white microaggressions. A few colleges, such as the California State University at Los Angeles, have conceded to these exclusionary demands.
As a state university, the Evergreen campus is taxpayer funded, with a campus that legally ought to be accessible to everyone, regardless of race.
