The black student protesters at Evergreen State College in Washington state are doing it again. Last week they raised a ruckus when one white professor refused to leave campus for the day and also because their list of demands (Which is half as long as the Declaration of Independence) wasn’t being addressed. Now, they are upset because their class assignments are due and they were too busy protesting to do theirs. They want the president of the university to give them a pass with no penalty. He has given in and promised to get to work on their entire list.
First, the school came under scrutiny after a video showed protesters confronting a professor who refused to leave campus over his white skin color. That teacher, professor Bret Weinstein, questioned the school event’s request that all white people leave the campus during a day-long diversity event.
In response, student protesters accused Weinstein of being racist and demanded his resignation.
Weinstein appeared Friday on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” to discuss what happened to him. He told host Tucker Carlson that the school is essentially being bullied by protesters and the school’s president is caving to the protesters’ ardent demands.
As first reported by Campus Reform, a newly released video shows Evergreen State President George Bridges essentially bowing to the demands of student protesters — even agreeing to relieve them of their class homework.
“All of us are students and have homework and projects and things due. Have you sent an email out to your faculty letting them know?” a female protester asks in the video. “What’s been done about that?”
“It’s the first thing I’ll do. I have not done it yet, I will do it right now,” Bridges replies.
“So they need to be told that these assignments won’t be done on time and we don’t need to be penalized for that,” the unnamed protester demands again.
Later in the video, which appeared to be recorded from Bridges’ office, Bridges is seen holding what appeared to be a list of demands. Bridges said he would immediately begin working on the list with his faculty.
Bridges said that the college will not discipline the students for their protests, the college will expand police training, establish an “expanded equity and multicultural center,” and force school faculty to undergo additional cultural sensitivity training. The school also agreed to hire coordinators for transgender and gay students as well as a liaison for undocumented students.
