Bret Weinstein v. Evergreen State College

 

Background — In May of this year, liberal professor Bret Weinstein, a molecular biologist, was surrounded and threatened by a motley group of belligerent and foul-mouthed Evergreen State College social justice student activists because he had published an email stating his refusal to leave campus and stop teaching on a day that was set aside for black students only. Weinstein, quite rightly, pointed out the problems with this new form of racial segregation. Google’s Human Resources department, which holds racially- and gender-based segregated workshops may want to learn from what took place at Evergreen.

In late July, Weinstein filed a $3.8 million lawsuit against the institution. From Reason.com:

Evergreen State College Wakes Up to the Costs of Wokeness

 
Extracurricular activities at Evergreen State College.

It’s been two years since violent racial unrest crippled the University of Missouri. The school’s decision to coddle the mob resulted in freshmen enrollment dropping by more than 35 percent, the elimination of 400 positions, and the closing of seven dorms. The 2017 enrollment drop lost the school $16.6 million, while a disgusted state government punished the campus with another $15 million in cuts.

Following this summer’s angry protests at the much smaller Evergreen State College in Olympia, WA, that school is also facing the “Mizzou Effect.” The College Fix has the deets:

This Is an Interesting Case of Media Bias

 

There is a story that I first heard on my local Seattle radio station, KTTH 770 AM, this afternoon while waiting in the drive-through line at Starbucks. It involves a biology professor at Evergreen State College in Olympia. It seems that the students of color at our most far-left institution of Higher (?) Education, every year have an event called Day of Absence/Day of Presence, where the students of color leave campus for a day and do their own anti-racism workshops (I assume they skip all their classes that day and talk to each other about how oppressed they are by the faculty and students of pallor). This year, they decided to change the format, and instead of absenting themselves from campus, they “invited” all the white students and faculty to stay away for that day, leaving the campus to them.

Biology Professor Bret Weinstein was not too happy about that, and he said so in an email to the person organizing the event.
