Sounds like the professor had a slight lapse of judgement by today's standards, but clearly his intent was to have his students think critically about the different perspectives of the terrible topic. Merely discussing different POV's from a historic sense does not equate to condoning it personally. We are in a period of hysteria and witch hunts, many of which are based on complete fabrication or at best, misunderstanding. Today in America, the more feigned outrage you show, the more virtuous you are. It's crazy, because just the opposite is true.


Funny how so many of the same people who claim to want a "dialogue", are the same ones who want to shut down anyone who doesn't completely agree with them.

It's amazing to me what society "tolerates" and what they don't. A lot of hypocrisy there. And let me just say this about the theater world, there are no bigger hypocrites anywhere on the face of this planet. Some of them are some of the most judgmental and intolerant people that I have ever met.

Or perhaps larger than the university
I have come to the conclusion that one useless man is called a disgrace; that two are called a law firm, and that three or more become a Congress - K.I.T.T., “1776”

Bit of a tangent here, but at the middle school and high school levels, I think role plays are an awesome way to make the material come to life for students. But it doesn't seem like you can get away with it anymore if classmates would equate acting with real life. I certainly wouldn't want to play a slaveholder being forced to defend my position if some classmates were looking to kill me after class for something that I know is an atrocity. Not sure education is always supposed to be comfortable.

I’m going to reassess my contributions to St. John’s. This is unacceptable.

With all due respect Beast, maybe if there is so much at stake for the school, then they should reconsider their actions. And as alum, we have every right to voice our unhappiness. The same exact thing is going on at Xavier High School right now. There are a lot of very unhappy alum who have banded together and let the administration know about it.

Radical Social Justice Warriors sounds like a lovely little group. Can non students join? Glad I attended college in the 70's because I don't think I could stomach the bullshit that goes on today.

I would ask that anyone concerned about this potential firing, should carefully read all facts as presented, and express your concern by writing Interim Dean Gina Florio, floriog@stjohns.edu , who will let Professor Taylor know his fate on Friday, Dr. Gempeshaw, or William J. Janetschek , chairman of the board of trustees.

IMO, the problem is that these absurd SJW views which are easily debunked in many cases, are implied to be correct because the media goes along with it. If you watch CNN, what used to be crazy liberal talking points outside the mainstream is now on mainstream CNN. What used to be crazy university stuff is now on Main St. Liberals own every institution in this country. Media, education, hollywood, etc. Them backing this stuff makes regular people assume SJW talking points are factual. Watch Douglas Murray if you think SJW points have any legitimacy. He demolishes this world view.
