Black College Fired White Professor Because of her Skin Color, Court Rules


A white professor at a predominantly black university in Missouri was fired “because of the color of her skin,” a state appeals court ruled Tuesday.

A Missouri appeals court upheld a jury verdict which found that Harris-Stowe State University (HSSU), a historically black college, discriminated against one of its instructors because she is white.

The trial jury awarded Beverly Wilkins 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, a Caucasian woman from a modest background, was hired as an adjunct professor in the Education Department at Harris-Stowe in St Louis, in 2001.

Then, in 2010, after having successfully risen to full-time instructor as a non-tenure-track professor, Wilkins was unexpectedly fired from her position by the Board of Regents due to alleged “reductions in state funding.”

But her lawsuit, initiated two years ago, tells a different story. In it, she claims that despite having taught at the school for less time than her, two of her black colleagues were allowed to keep their jobs.

  1. The Times, They Are A-Changin’.

    Oh wait, sorry. BLM and white guilt kiddies “occupy” HSSU admin offices in 3…2…

  2. Are the taxpayers gonna have to suck it up for the Regents’ racism?

    The Regents should be made to pay the bill out of their personal assets – it’s called “responsibility” and would be a great lesson for their students.

  3. I’m with Tim
    Sell off some buildings, fire some people and take away their fat pensions.
    Then come the pay cuts
    We’ll call them ‘reparations’

  4. This ought to be on the front pages of every paper in the land as well as the news shows on channels like BET and PBS. We’ve been told time and again that blacks can’t be racist and get attacked if we suggest it. If you say a big lie like that often enough people will begin to believe.

    I’d suggest to you now that there are more black racists per capita then white ones and while the number of white racists continues to drop the number of black racists is going up fast. This only serves to help the Democrats who I suspect are behind this.

    In any event it was an incredibly brave of this teacher to stick to her guns and challenge racism where she saw it. Getting this story out there among the population may help illustrate that regardless of what BLM, NAACP, the Democrats and the media says that racism exists on both sides.
