This bias case is against the same University where Amy Wax got to keep a $300K+ job after saying Black students are inferior and there are "too many Asians."
Another reason for @POTUS to cut ties with @PennBiden and reconsider the Gutmann nomination.…
Penn is not alone. U. Minnesota was sued over sexual harassment, discrimination and retaliation in its Music School. A male professor playing the FMK game during graduate student oral examinations, a department head commenting on what's under a female professor's skirt and more .
Reliable sources say that the #MeToo plaintiff in the Minnesota case is seriously considering running for Congress as an independent candidate. We need to fix some laws in this Country.
The last time @pennlaw denied tenure to a professor (one with an outstanding scholarly reputation in his field) the professor just happened to be Asian American. Pure coincidence.....
At the time the Asian American professor denied tenure had a stronger national reputation than the tenured professors in his field on the same faculty and quickly went to another prominent law school.

Nietzsche’s defense of slavery was extreme even in his day. He also contemptuously used the term “slave revolt” for ideas he didn’t agree with. In 2022 a tenured professor uses that term for people who aren't like him and whom he disagrees with. Awful.…
Philosophical justifications for slavery existed well into the 19th Century. Arguments premised on superiority and inferiority of human beings are being revived today by those fearful of diversification and democratization of ideas and government.…
Just a suggestion. A week after @pennlaw Professor Amy Wax said we have "too many Asians" in America, it might not be a good idea for a @UChicagoLaw professor to use the term "slave revolt" borrowed from a philosopher who justified slavery, to refer to people he disagrees with.

Even after two Nobel Prize winning economists compared his Comfort Women paper to Holocaust denial, Mark Ramseyer persists with his defamatory claim that victims of wartime sex slavery were just prostitutes. Japanese scholars soundly repudiated this revisionism. Awful.
We demanded retraction of Ramseyer's Comfort Women paper because it didn't meet standards of peer review. IRLE Journal editor Johnathan Klick (@pennlaw) answered with a sneer saying our objections were "incoherent." With this blogger he then attacked us.…
I'm not sure what is going on at @pennlaw but between IRLE editor Jonathan Klick insisting on publishing Ramseyer's defamatory Comfort Women article and attacking those of us who object, and Amy Wax, they might want to lay low in Asia for a while.

Months ago I called out @UChicago law professor Brian Leiter for calling this woman's story a "hoax." I believe she was telling the truth. For months I have been attacked on Twitter and on a blog connected to a wokekkk .com domain name. Fed up!…
The blog host's Twitter account was suspended but Leiter continues to attack me on Twitter and in defamatory blog posts. Another person using a "skeptic" Twitter handle is doing the same. Their common theme is that this woman's story is a "hoax."
Ridiculous. These instances were not hoaxes.…

What now? Shall we go back to the 1882 Chinese Exclusion Act?
This professor already made defamatory statements about the Black students in her law school.

‘Racist’ Penn Law Prof Makes Disturbing Claim U.S. Is ‘Better Off With Fewer Asians’…
Anyone who thinks there isn't discrimination against Asians in our wealthiest universities should listen to Amy Wax at @pennlaw. Exhibit A when there's a lawsuit.
I don't know, and don't care to know, much more Professor Wax. My family immigrated to America. If her ancestors were here before 1620, she could have something legitimate to say about the character and behavior of immigrants. Otherwise she should keep a lid on it.

Penn must fire Professor Wax if she made this comment about Asian Americans. Such racist talk has no place in a decent law school.

‘Racist’ Penn Law Prof Makes Disturbing Claim U.S. Is ‘Better Off With Fewer Asians’… via @thedailybeast
These statements about Asians are all too similar to statements National Socialists in Germany made about Jews in rhetoric that escalated in the 1920's. The time to put a stop to such hatred is NOW.…
Professor Wax already made defamatory statements about Black students. Now she targets Asians. Enough is enough.…

What's this about? The University's Board of Regents was acting as if there was plenty of money only a week ago when they raised the University President's salary to over $1 million.

University of Minnesota to Ask State for Almost $1 Billion…
I'm fine with the $1 billion from Minnesota taxpayers, provided there is a dollar for dollar tuition reduction for Minnesota residents. College education is unaffordable for far too many students and their families.
Ken Powell is the chairman of the University of Minnesota Board of Regents. He likes big paydays.
He should cover the million dollar payday he arranged for the University president. Then he can come ask the Minnesota taxpayer for more money.…
