The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) has come to his aid.

Professor who complained about white people on Facebook loses appeal with Rutgers
A controversial Rutgers University professor who wrote Facebook posts complaining about gentrification in his neighborhood was found guilty of violating university policies late last month.
His appeal has now been denied, prompting the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education to write a letter to Rutgers demanding that it reverse its guilty finding.
In a press release Tuesday, FIRE said James Livingston was found guilty of violating Rutgers’s Policy Prohibiting Discrimination and Harassment, with possible penalties “up to and including discharge.” Livingston appealed, claiming that his posts were protected by academic freedom.
FIRE reminded Rutgers President Robert Barchi that he previously defended academic freedom two years ago, following the raucous riot against anti-feminist provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos.
The group also pointed out that the American Association of University Professors expressed “increasing concerns about efforts to intimidate and harass faculty.”
Livingston’s first post that drew attention read: “OK, officially, I now hate white people. I am a white people [sic], for God’s sake, but can we keep them–us–out of my neighborhood?”
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
huh. That’s a surprise.
I never heard of this guy before, so I don’t know a whole lot about the situation. With luck, I’ll never hear about him again, and can happily forget about him.
On one hand, I gotta support the guys right to say what he wants.
On the other, if I am interpreting things correctly, this dude is a white guy living in a gentrifying neighborhood complaining about other white people moving in and gentrifying the neighborhood.
Talk about mixed feelings.
Over the past 3 – 4 decades our colleges & universities have become a Cesspool of Hate, Bigotry and Extreme Liberalism. It’s either their way or the highway. Our kids are coming out with their minds twisted by this BS then reality sets in as they see the world does NOT work that way.
Every Teacher & Professor DOES NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO THEIR BELIEFS when educating our kids. They MUST remain neutral on ALL ISSUES and inspire the students to exercise Critical Thinking ,, not spewing the liberal propaganda. Hitler stated it in 1939 ,,, “Give me your children and in 10 years I will change society”. That has become the demoCraps Platform !!
That’s completely untrue. Every professor has a right to all of their beliefs, unless you think thoughtcrime should be legal.
They don’t have a right to all of their actions.
However, in this case, the action was on social media, not in the classroom. I believe it should be allowed, but it’s funny to see a liberal whine when their rules don’t go their way.
The teacher/professor may be mentally ill. Or, simply extremely susceptible to the leftist/globalist/New World Order indoctrination using extreme political correctness to divide and conquer the people of the Western world so that tyrannical elites can take control of Western society and create a fiefdom where they are the New Royalty lording over the masses of serfs.
Foreign barbarians allowed to enter the West to dilute Western cultures/societies/countries combined with the intensive ongoing indoctrination is creating a divided populace. Western people must amass our forces to repel the barbarians and curtail the traitorous oligarchs/plutocrats infesting our beloved lands.
Update: My comment shown above placed at “College Fix” was removed from their comment section. I believe my statements are reality and truthful. Has political correctness that poses a threat to the Western world spread to every nook and cranny of society?
This guy lives in Harlem by choice, it sounds to me like he is a bit whacked.
From Prof. Livingston’s official page at Rutgers University is the following:
“I started out as an economic historian writing about banking reform in the Progressive Era. My first book, which is still in print thanks to the financial crises created by supply-side economics since 1983, was Origins of the Federal Reserve System: Money, Class, and Corporate Capitalism, 1890-1913 (Cornell U Press, 1986).”
Further he writes:
“The “election” of George W. Bush and the political, intellectual, and cultural consequences of 9/11 changed my attitude toward history. I started a blog in 2003 as a desperate, feeble protest against the militarization of American life and the march toward a “war on terror” in the Middle East.”
In my blessed grandmother’s day this was called ‘gobbledygook’ a fancier word for the professor’s writing and point of view sophistry.
We’re paying taxes to support this university and this man’s salary and benefits.
“…economic historian…protest against the militarization of American life…”
Did he miss the mid 18th C during the formation of this great country?
College education workaround: Do not send sons and daughters off to a 4-year college. Start them in the local community college where they can get their Associates degree after which time they’ll hopefully have matured measurably. They will have the ability to know BS when they spot it around the campus of the college they’ll finish their Bachelor’s degree. All four of my kids took this route. All four graduated with useful degrees. Not one of them came back with a worthless degree in fill-in-the-blank-Studies. This path saved us over $175,000 and my kids were ready for the rigors of attaining a useful degree, and were very happy, though not at first, that they took that path.
Unless James Livingston is a professor of real estate, …
he’s getting the results of the new rules he & his ilk have foisted upon everyone else.
as Kurt Schlicter says “they’re going to hate the new rules”
Is it OK for me to hate about 95% of the white people in Portland? And for reasons of gentrification as well.
