No Hiring of Faculty Without Bias Training
The University of Pennsylvania apparently fears that without unconscious bias training, its faculty hiring decisions might be unfair.
An item in the October 15 Daily Pennsylvanian says: “Penn faculty on hiring committees are now required to undergo unconscious bias training.”
The Office of the Provost’s training, which will take place in October, will be run by the New York-based Perception Institute. The Institute is the same research-collaborative that conducted employee training for Starbucks after the coffee chain came under national scrutiny following the arrest of two black men in a Philadelphia Starbucks.
Angry Georgetown Prof Wants to Castrate Men
The feminist Georgetown professor who tweeted that white male Republicans who voted to confirm Justice Kavanaugh should die miserable deaths and then be castrated has paid a price, but so far, only to Twitter, which suspended her account. Georgetown gave her the rest of the term off, but in a limp statement defending free speech and criticizing unkind remarks, the president of Georgetown didn’t even name the professor—Christine Fair. Fair tweeted this statement: “Look [this] chorus of entitled white men justifying a serial rapist’s arrogated entitlement. All of them deserve miserable deaths while feminists laugh as they take their last gasps. Bonus: we castrate their corpses and feed them to swine? Yes.”
‘Accidental’ Loss for Yale Conservative?
James Kirchick, a conservative anti-PC journalist, has been running for a seat on the Yale University Board of Trustees and counting heavily on the class notes section of the alumni magazine to boost the effort and attract endorsements. Imagine his surprise when the magazine ‘accidentally’ dropped the class notes from the Oct.-Nov. issue. Now he must gather 2000 more endorsements by midnight tonight, October 1. The College Fix says, “Kirchick is campaigning on a free-speech platform that aims to rein in the Ivy League school’s ‘busybody’ bureaucrats, trigger warnings and ‘mob’ justice.”
