But this was a black college in Missouri where a white professor was fired "because of the color of her skin," a state appeals court ruled.
And the evidence was clear. Beverly Wilkins was awarded nearly $5 million--including $3.5 million in punitive damages--based on her claim that she was discriminated against in favor of less senior black teachers.
Wilkins was hired as an adjunct professor in the Education Department at Harris-Stowe in St Louis, in 2001. But in 2010, after she successfully rose to full-time instructor as a non-tenure-track professor, she was unexpectedly fired from her position by the Board of Regents due to alleged "reductions in state funding."
Her 2015 lawsuit tells a different story. She claimed that two of her black colleagues having taught for less than time than her, were allowed to keep their jobs.
And she was replaced by a new and part-time instructor for a total of $23,000--more than she was getting paid in her position.
There's more, but suffice it to say, this is a clear-cut case of racial bias, or racism. Even the emails of the dean repeatedly spoke of her desire to make the education department "blacker."
So I guess they all voted for Donald Trump.
