Did you hear about the Professor that wouldn't participate in the Day of Absence event that bans all white people from Evergreen State University and would provide a safe space for minority's? He's has been harassed to the point that he can't teach.

Evergreen State College is a non-traditional school, that encourages student participation and action. Lately there has been some unrest over perceived racism, sexism, and mistreatment of the disabled. The students had been staging protests for a few days.

I have read up on the Professor's letter objecting to the Day of Absence, and I certainly think he expressed himself very well.

The confrontations by the students, as described, are quite aggressive indeed. But, follow up stories seem to indicate that things have settled down now.

What I cannot figure out is why none of the local papers are carrying the story that is being presented by the Washington Post and Washington Times, neither of which are Washington State publications.

It is a puzzlement.

Sounds about right.
Not morally right, of course.
Just "this does not surprise me" right.
