David and Goliath: The Posts That Cover My Response to The Chronicle of Higher Education

These posts are the ones that drive the most traffic here so I’m compiling and archiving them for easy reference.

Yes, I really was on I-20 on my iPad when I wrote the first blog response to Naomi Schaefer Riley’s disjointed, vitriolic post about the illegitimacy of black studies programs.

And, yes, they really sent an editor to attack me on Twitter.

And, no, I never expected over 7,000 signatures on my little petition to have Schaefer Riley dismissed.

And, finally, yes the white woman got to play the aggrieved victim after CHE did the only right thing.

And, yes, you can find a wee bit more about my thinking on the structural issues this debate highlights here.

The end.
