University of Washington law students demand nebulous ‘racial justice’
First-year law students at the University of Washington interrupted a lecture by the dean of the School of Law last week to highlight the “erasure” experienced by “marginalized” students.
Dressed in all black with some putting tape across their mouths featuring the word “SILENCED,” The Daily reports the student demonstrators asked Dean Mario Barnes several questions, including why there are so few minority professors teaching law.
Other queries included why racist and transphobic professors “are not held accountable,” and why there are no Native American law students at UW.
The protesters also presented Barnes with a list of demands which includes more faculty and students of color, and more resources for the required first-year course “Introduction to Perspectives on the Law.”
The “Perspectives” class, according to the report, “is the only required course in which students are given space to critically examine and discuss the racist and patriarchal foundations of the American legal system.” Of the five professors who teach it, only one is a minority.
The demand letter notes the law school core curriculum “strips the identity of marginalized students” because it disregards how they’re “treated differently in the justice system.”
