Evergreen State College’s “Day of Absence” is a yearly event in which white students are commanded by campus activists to flee campus for a day, because their very presence is considered a racist threat to minority achievement. This event is fully sanctioned by Evergreen State College, and has been going on – in various forms – since 1965. However, its day’s may be numbered.
Bret Weinstein, a professor at Evergreen State College is suing the institution after having been harassed, abused, and threatened by violent mobs of students over his opposition to the anti-white “Day of Absence” this past May. Weinstein was fired for speaking out against the, “Day of Absence.”
Weinstein recounted the intimidation and firing, saying, “Through a series of decisions made at the highest levels, including to officially support a day of racial segregation, the College has refused to protect its employees from repeated provocative and corrosive verbal and written hostility based on race, as well as threats of physical violence and the money demanded is “a total claimed on behalf of both professors collectively ‘for the hostile work environment that has been fostered at the college over the past year or so.”
Weinstein’s attorney argued that the forced segregation of the anti-white “Day of Absence” promoted “strong objections, racial divisiveness, confusion and anger, vituperative attacks among colleagues, and ugly retaliation against those who objected … the whole enterprise and the events leading up to it created an illegal racially hostile work environment, and its aftermath to a retaliatory one.”
It is “legally irrelevant that The College implemented this plan [the Day of Absence] to achieve positive goals,” he added.
A letter addressed to Weinstein that was published on the Medium.com stated that Weinstein is trying to use his Jewish heritage to lash out against Black students. “We want to talk about the ways that Weinstein is positioning himself as a Jew to invalidate the claims of racism being raised against him,” the letter stated.
The inflammatory letter continues, “Bret Weinstein is wrong, he has put you in danger, and we will not allow him to hide behind our histories in order to dodge responsibility for his abhorrent and reprehensible words and actions.” The letter concludes by lapsing into unhinged, “All-Caps,” screeching, “NO COPS ON CAMPUS!!! FIRE BRET WEINSTEIN!!! BLACK LIVES MATTER!!!”
The letter also accuses the radically SJW campus of Evergreen State of having, “permitted, cultivated, and perpetuated a racially hostile and retaliatory work environment” and that, “Through a series of decisions made at the highest levels, including to officially support a day of racial segregation, the College has refused to protect its employees from repeated provocative and corrosive verbal and written hostility based on race, as well as threats of physical violence.”
Will these activists ever be satisfied? What should be done about these people?
