UNC Wilmington Trustee Resigns Over Poor Treatment of Conservatives

UNC Wilmington Trustee Resigns Over Poor Treatment of Conservatives

“punishes conservative voices by looking the other way”

In his letter of resignation, the board member included a reference to the late conservative professor Mike Adams.

The North State Journal reports:

UNC Wilmington Board of Trustees member resigns, citing treatment of conservatives

A University of North Carolina at Wilmington Board of Trustees member has resigned and his letter reveals issues with disparate treatment of conservatives on campus.

Board of trustees member Woody White posted an image of his letter of resignation which he submitted on Sept. 22 to North Carolina House Speaker Tim Moore (R-Kings Mountain).

White was first appointed by Moore to the University of North Carolina at Wilmington (UNCW) Board of Trustees in 2018 and he was reappointed in 2019. His current term would have ended to a term ending in 2023.

In addition to posting a screenshot of his resignation letter on Facebook, White also posted the extended the text of the letter he had sent to Moore.

The letter says UNCW “punishes conservative voices by looking the other way,” and the school knows about student self-censorship but does “nothing about it.” White also says that UNCW “places high value on diversity, equity and inclusion” but there is “not a peep” about supporting “diversity of thought.”

While not mentioning him by name, White points out the different treatment conservative and progressive professors receive at UNCW with a reference to the well-known conservative UNCW Professor, the late Mike Adams.

“When a conservative professor fights for equality in his 1st Amendment rights and wins $700,000, he remains an outcast by an unrepentant Administration and bullied to a point where he kills himself,” wrote White. “But When a liberal professor advocates violence against conservative students, nobody says anything. Nothing happens.”

I misread the headline. I thought the trustee resigned over his own poor treatment of conservatives.
That would have been a happy story. This isn’t.

I get it … there’s only so much you can take … and for all I know maybe his resignation is the most effective way to make his point. OTOH … who will fight in his stead? Isn’t resignation withdrawing yourself from the fight and missing an opportunity to change things for the better? Isn’t resignation succeeding ground to your foe? That’s supposed to improve the treatment of conservatives?
