Court awards white professor $4.8 million in race discrimination case

EAGnews:

ST. LOUIS, Mo. – A white former professor at the historically black Harris-Stowe State University won a nearly $5 million verdict after the court agreed she was fired because of her race.

Beverly Wilkins filed the discrimination lawsuit in 2012 and singled out administrator Latisha Smith, a black faculty member accused of instilling a “Black Power” mantra in the university’s college of education, the St. Louis Post Dispatch reports.

The lawsuit pointed out that Wilkins was hired by the University in 2001, and Smith came in 2007, but was quickly promoted through the ranks to ultimately serve as dean of the education college. Smith dismissed Wilkins in 2010, citing state budget cuts, but then hired black professors at an increased cost.

  1. There’s no such thing as an African-American. If a person, no matter what their color, can’t be an American, then they’re just an African. And I’d be happy to pay for their one way ticket back to Africa. Glad this professor will be laughing all the way to the bank.
