As a professor @LinfieldUniv and a white Oregonian carrying the knowledge of our state’s racist past, I take the NAACP seriously. But this “report” is bogus.
The report cites Davis’s accomplishments at @LinfieldUniv as though they prove him innocent of other problematic behavior. Pro-tip: people do both good things and bad things. #linfield #naacp
The report says that accusations by faculty that Davis has been “divisive,” “abusive,” and “combative” constitute coded racism, arising from our implicit bias against him as a Black man. But there is no evidence presented for this claim.

#MLKDay にキング牧師を追悼して「平等を求める戦いにおいて愛とその信念を体現した英雄に敬意を表して」とツイートした #マクナニー大統領報道官 に対して #NAACP 公式「ヘイトに満ちたレトリックを撒き散らしていた者が平等と真実のために生涯を捧げた人間の言葉を語るなど言語道断」とピシャリ。
(続き)「しかもその間あなたは、近年最もヘイトに満ち分断を煽ってきた政権に身を置いてたのだから。 #MLKDay は行動を呼びかける日だが、あなたに求める行動は。黙れ!だ。」

To #Klobuchar from Tahisha Williams Brewer: "I am the mother of #CourtneyWilliams, who was shot by #Minneapolis Police." A homicide detective told Brewer the case would go to a grand jury. She asked, "Why does it *have* to be sent to a grand jury?"

Today for Black History Month, we're honoring Julian Bond. He has an impeccable record of accomplishments, helping to found the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee in 1960 as well as the Southern Poverty Law Center.

He was elected to the Georgia House of Representatives, where his white colleagues refused to seat him. He would win a case in the Supreme Court and would serve in the Georgia House and Georgia Senate for decades.

He taught at many universities and wound up becoming chair of the NAACP. We should all strive to live a life as Julian, as he had such an impact and legacy devoted to helping his community.
