“This type of white rage is real for many of us.”
This happened at St. Olaf College, which was the site of a campus race hoax a few years ago. Also, she is scared of theater students? Really?

Theater prof cites ‘white rage,’ fear of white students as reason for leaving job
A St. Olaf College theater department professor blamed “white rage” and a fear of white students as reasons for her recent decision to leave her job at the small, private campus.
Professor Michelle Gibbs sent an email to a St. Olaf faculty listserv June 18 explaining the driving force behind her decision.
“This past year, I taught in constant fear of my white students. I knew if I angered them, it could mean my job, or fear that they would come for my career,” Gibbs said in the email obtained by The College Fix. “This type of white rage is real for many of us.”
“I am leaving St. Olaf College because as a Black woman I don’t have the full support of my white colleagues at the college. There are not enough white faculty and administrators willing to stand on the front lines to support us against a biased system that is set up to fail us as Black and Brown faculty.”
Gibbs did not respond to a request from The College Fix seeking comment. The College Fix also reached out to St. Olaf’s associate director of communications, Kari VanDerVeen, but did not receive an answer.
Gibbs, in her email, invoked the death of George Floyd, who died after a Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck for over eight minutes, to further explain her disdain for white students at the small Minnesota college.
She said she prefers the caucasians at the ongoing national protests.
“If you watch some of the peaceful protest footage in cities like Minneapolis and New York, white people are literally using their bodies as shields to protect Black and Brown residents from the police,” she said in the email.
