When a white professor at an American university is denied tenure, the people on the committee that are shutting him or her out are likely to include “people of color.”
That’s what affirmative action is all about. You get “affirmative” people on the tenure committee or the Human Resources Department, and they affirm more people like themselves, or if not exactly like themselves, at least different from white people.
So she probably wasn’t shooting them because they were black or Indian, but because they had denied her tenure.
And they had denied her tenure because…? Possibly because she was white. That’s really how affirmative action works. There’s an extreme shortage of posts in academia, compared to the number of Ph.D’s out there.
PS: college is bad for you.
Right now, there’s a Law & Order scriptwriter mumbling, “They don’t pay me enough around here…”
