A "Professor of Composition" that uses the word "Ain't"?


Utter hypocrisy of Oberlin administration

If a White professor uttered such venom about the alleged misdeeds and malevolence of Africans and African-Americans, her tenure would be measured in nano-seconds.

Eh, her criticism the power of the Jewish people is parallel to the Oberlin Jewish criticism of the power of the European people. Glad to be out of the madhouse. I wonder what will happen.

I'm disappointed in Krislov's acceptance of Karega. Though she has every right to express her views, because her views are dangerous and distorted, Oberlin needs to distance itself from her. It is extremely irresponsible to keep her as an Oberlin educator, as she is in a position of misleading students and fostering hate and stereotyping. She may think of herself as a "free-thinker" and Oberlin has always supported free-thinkers of all kinds. But this is not simply "free-thinking". This is venomous and baseless discourse. She represents the kind of dangerous hate-mongering that is poisoning our country.


Dangerous person in an influential position

This is not freedom of speech but a person of power over young, idealistic minds trying to incite hate and vitriol on the premise of educating. This is very dangerous and reminds me of the 1930s rise of hitler with his propaganda and incitement to hate and blame on the Jewish people!!....to allow such a person to maskarade as a teacher of critical thinking based on unbiased exposures really reduces the quality of this fine college!! WHAT IS THE ADMINISTRATION THINKING.??? I certainly cannot recommend Oberline anymore to students wishing to great a quality education!!! This is not free speech but the equivalent of showing Pornography in the classroom!!!! SHAME ON YOU, OBERLIN for your allowance of a pretense for education !!!
