Professors Protest New California State University Chancellor for Not Being Anti-Racist Enough

“In our contract negotiations, we have explicitly had several anti-racist and social justice proposals, all of which have been rejected by your team.”

In North Korea, people are targeted for not clapping hard enough for the dear leader. How is this any different?

Campus Reform reports:

CA professors protest new chancellor for not being ‘anti-racist’ enough

Faculty at Sacramento State University protested the new California State University chancellor over his purported inaction on anti-racism practices.

According to a report in The State Hornet, a student newspaper at Sacramento State University, California State University Chancellor Joseph Castro and Sac State President Robert Nelsen were confronted by members of the California Faculty Association on November 3 during his first visit to the university.

The CFA is an “anti-racist, social justice union.”

Professors and students pushed for higher pay and follow-through on diversity goals during an open forum and protests.

Images taken by Camryn Dadey of The State Hornet show protesters holding signs with captions such as “Chancellor Castro, Stop Clowning Around!” and “Castro’s Plan: Delay Deny Devalue.”

“President Nelsen has said that he wants this to be an anti-racist campus, and we’re still, obviously, waiting for more progress on that,” sociology professor Kevin Wehr said in an interaction with Castro recorded by The State Hornet. “In our contract negotiations, we have explicitly had several anti-racist and social justice proposals, all of which have been rejected by your team. We have demanded an alternative to policing on campus.”

Castro, according to the student publication, added the following, “So, if you won’t put it in the contract, if you won’t put anti-racist language in the contract, then it remains a racist document. Why won’t you take action on anti-racism and social justice demands?”

I’ll give you one guess which one of those they would be willing to give up for the other. Hint: It’s not the first one.

    Exactly right. And I bet that there are only a few activists among the faculty that are making all the noise and pretending to represent the whole faculty.

That’s some negotiation tactic–if you won’t give us what we want, you’re racist

Those Marxist weeds should have been plucked and discarded long ago. This is what happens when no one tends the garden.

“Professors Protest New Chancellor for not Being Sufficiently Racist Against Non-Blacks” …fixed your title, there.
