Tenured College Professor Might Lose His Job Over ‘Completely Fabricated’ Accusations of Racism

“Many of the faculty quietly tell me thank you for speaking up because we’re afraid to do so”

This is one of the horrible things about making an accusation like this. You can ruin someone’s life.

FOX News reports:

California college professor says ‘completely fabricated’ claims of racism may cost him his job

A California college professor is fighting back after he says his job has been threatened due to allegations of racism and hate speech that he said were “completely fabricated.”

Tenured Bakersfield College history professor Matthew Garrett said he and other faculty members of a free speech coalition were targeted with false allegations after they asked questions during a campus diversity meeting last October. Shortly afterwards, Garrett received a notice of unprofessional conduct by the administration that claimed he had caused “real harm” to students and said he was being removed from the diversity committee “effective immediately.”

In December, vice president of the school district’s Board of Trustees John Corkins made headlines after he lashed out at the group during a board meeting saying the “abusive” and “disrespectful” minority of teachers needed to be “culled,” and taken “to the slaughterhouse.”

Professor Garrett told Fox News Digital he wasn’t the only one who had “growing campus frustrations” with the “radical” changes that the district had made in the past few years.

“Many of the faculty quietly tell me thank you for speaking up because we’re afraid to do so,” he said.

He described how critical race theory and other racial equity initiatives had become popular after Black Lives Matter drew national attention in 2020.

“Our campus has been really radically transformed in the last two years or so. In the last two years we’ve adopted critical race theory, diversity training, implicit bias training, micro aggression trainings. We’ve adopted racial quotas and preferences, affirmative action-type behavior, we’ve adopted racially segregated classes, we’ve adopted mandated masks, compulsory vaccines, and location tracking software. We’ve got funding going to propaganda webpages you can track through grants,” he said.

One thing you gotta give the Marxists is that they understand the power of “solidarity,” “union,” and all the rest of that hive behavior. When you’re part of an organized mob, you don’t need so much individual courage. Something normies better twig to fast.

    Gentlemen (and ladies), find your bravery. All of you need to stand up and get vocal. They can’t fire you all.

      That’s supposed to be the social contract that comes with tenure isn’t it? Apparently they’re trying to overcome tenure and fire anyway, but this is when it matters most.

      If they don’t speak up now, I would strip them all of tenure because it did us no good in the clutch.

Note to self: Avoid Bakersfield College and anyone who has ever had anything to do with the place.

he said were “completely fabricated.”
Then why aren’t you suing for defamation?

    Costs $$$, and few lawyers want to take a case on contingency where they’re going against a college with lots of money and where other sources of big money might appear to make sure the college doesn’t lose?
