Wow….an assistant professor of rhetoric and composition at Oberlin College, who, by the way, can’t write worth a damn, is pimping her idiotic, anti-Semitic ideas on social media. And, shockingly, the Jewish president of Oberlin is backing her. Hell, he should fire her just for writing so badly, not just for being a Jew-hating idiot.
Trust, when I come up out of my Unbothered state of being, I’ll have a lot to say (analysis, no doubt) about the kinds of intimidation and silencing tactics that are rhetorically enacted in digital spaces […] and how common it is for Black women, who are early in their career on the tenure track as part of the professoriate, to be prime targets for these kinds of activities and practices…
The problem is that not only is she an ignorant, poorly educated twit, her racist hate-mongering undoubtedly leaks out of her mushy brain and into the classroom.
But trust a cowardly college president to run away from any possibility of standing up for academic integrity and clarity of thought. All president Marvin Krislov sees is a Black woman who will unleash the terrible forces of BLM and the rest of the Social Justice Warrior gang if he doesn’t prostrate himself at the altar of post-modern anti-Semitism and hate.
One last thing. I wrote “ugly” in the title to describe her, both her inside and her outside. And what’s up with her straight hair? Is she embarrassed by her Blackness? And do I see scars on her face? Maybe she got carved up by her pimp back in the day when she wasn’t turning enough tricks.
Damn, now that’s writing.
“and how common it is for Black women, who are early in their career on the tenure track as part of the professoriate, to be prime targets for these kinds of activities and practices…”

Oh and just as a follow-up, my argument against Click stands here too: this person is incapable of the fairness required to run a classroom. Since “academic freedom” is a sudden thing people who aren’t me get, fire her for that then.
I doubt I know anyone that graduated from Oberlin. If I meet one I’ll be sure to laugh at them. Out loud.
