A professor at Evergreen State College in Washington State says he does not feel safe on campus after protestors called for 'white-free days' and then complained Conservative media were making them look bad.
According to the New York Post, students were particularly incensed by an email that surfaced on Twitter on May 25 between Professor Bret Weinstein and Rashida Love, the director of First Peoples Multicultural Advising Services. Weinstein, who is white, allegedly condemned the “Day of Absence” event that asked white people to leave campus for the day.
He called the day “an act of oppression in and of itself” and said that he would visit campus in spite of the demonstration, according to USA Today.
“Hey-hey, ho-ho, these racist teachers have got to go,” the students chanted in the video.
Weinstein told news station KING that he was advised last week not to go to campus for safety reasons.
“I have been told by the Chief of Police it’s not safe for me to be on campus,” Weinstein told KING. The station notes that Weinstein has spoken out in this year against increasing the role race plays in the admissions process.
