"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

White Students Take a Stand Against Black Professor's Racial Screeds During Class-- Lawsuits Ensue

"This sort of thing should not be happening in my post-racial America. Whites are just supposed to shut up."

Ah, the post-racial America... This sort of nonsense has to take place. Glenn Reynolds commented that he expects that "this sort of thing will become more common." Agreed. But it has to happen to get this sort of racialist nonsense out of the classrooms and back to junk websites like Stormfront and the Kwanzaa sites-- which openly calls for racial warfare-- where it belongs.

From The Daily Caller article by Robby Soave: (via Instapundit):

The trouble began in English professor Shannon Gibney’s Introduction to Mass Communications class at Minneapolis Community and Technical College. 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 during class time, according to her students. (She has previously taught classes on race and gender.) 
Recently, several white students announced that they had had enough with Gibney’s incessant racial screed. They interrupted her during a lecture, and said, “Why do we have to talk about this in every class? Why do we have to talk about this?” according to Gibney’s account of the incident, which was recorded by the City College News.  
Gibney felt put on the spot, but told the students not to take matters personally.
“We are not talking about all white people, or you white people in general,” she told them. “We are talking about whiteness as a system of oppression.” 
Perhaps unsurprisingly, this failed to provide comfort to the white students. Next, 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.  
The college said that it did not reprimand Gibney in the manner she claimed but declined to comment on the matter in general. 
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 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.” 
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. 
She did not respond to a request for comment.

Colleges have become something merely to endure simply to get a diploma... and even the diploma is becoming be more and more useless.
