Default Rationality returns to acedemia?

Well, well, well......

Is this the end of "white guilt" greasing the rails for the Liberals????



1. "White students fed up with black professor’s racial screeds, lawsuits fly

2. The politics of faux victimization are spiraling out of control at a community college in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where several white students, their black professor and irritated administrators have one-upped each other with complaints, reprimands and now a lawsuit.




3. The trouble began in English professor Shannon Gibney’s Introduction to Mass Communications class ...Though the class ostensibly has little to do with race, Gibney considers herself an activist on racial issues, and frequently invokes white privilege and oppression ....

4. ...several white students announced that they had had enough with Gibney’s incessant racial screed. They interrupted her during a lecture...


5. [English faculty Shannon Gibney received a letter of reprimand last weekend after a debate about structural racism in her Intro to Mass Communications class became too heated. This is the latest development in a string of incidences on campus regarding race,...http://citycollegenews.com/2013/11/0...on-on-campus/]





6. Gibney invited them to file a racial harassment complaint with the college if they were so offended.
So they did.
Last week, the college reprimanded Gibney and accused of her creating a hostile work environment for white students.

7. '...Your actions in targeting select students based on their race and gender caused them embarrassment and created a hostile learning environment.”'

8. This is not the first time that Gibney’s penchant for stirring the racial pot has raised eyebrows. She was investigated by the college on two previous occasions.





9. Gibney called MCTC’s investigations into her behavior “attacks on me by white males.”

“As a vocal black female younger looking… faculty member here, unfortunately this is no (sic) the first time,” she said. “I’ve actually had multiple verbal and institutional attacks on me by white males, whether they were students, faculty, administration or staff.”

10. Gibney and six other MCTC faculty members have filed a class action lawsuit against MCTC that alleges the college is a discriminatory workplace for people of color."

What an interesting....and healthy....turn of evens.


For far too long, college speech and political oppression has all been one way.....

...time for the market-place of ideas to be reinstituted.



This is hardly a good sign for Liberalism.

Predictable that her first response wasn't to examine her own behavior but to simply be angry that the students wouldn't allow themselves to be bullied.
