Up to now, the coveted title of “Worst College President in America” belonged without question to George Bridges of Evergreen State College in Washington, as we noted here back in 2018. But a new challenger has arisen, and has wrested the title from Bridges: Kathleen McCartney of Smith College.
We wrote here last week (in “The Disgrace of Smith College“) about the case of Jodi Shaw, the Smith College staff member hounded out of Smith because she dared to challenge the blatantly racist so-called ideology of “anti-racism” that is rampant on campuses everywhere. McCartney responded with a public letter disputing Shaw, but without rebutting any of the substantive claims Shaw made—a classic “non-denial-denial.”
Today the New York Times reported at length on the Smith controversy, and the portrait it offers of McCartney and Smith College is devastating. It’s quite a long story and worth reading all the way through if you have access to the Times, but here are some highlights, beginning with the story of a Black student in 2018 who brought charges of racism against several Smith staff members that a subsequent investigation by an outside law firm Smith hired concluded were unfounded.
But no matter to McCartney and the race mongers of Smith, who used the incident to launch on an ongoing Maoist struggle session with the campus, as well as ruining the lives of working class Smith employees who were improvidently branded as racists:
In midsummer of 2018, Oumou Kanoute, a Black student at Smith College, recounted a distressing American tale: She was eating lunch in a dorm lounge when a janitor and a campus police officer walked over and asked her what she was doing there.
