  1. what people fail to remember is you have to play the game, stay within the guidelines of academia, stay within your lane. As in all political positions you need to control your impulse to go against what the educational values of the institution your trying to get tenure at. Although we live in a free democratic society, we still need to play the game in order to get ahead this woman knew it and failed to play along at least until she got tenure and then after she got tenure she could do as she pleases. this professor knew the other professors who would be voting for her did not like what her projects were regardless of the subject matter, and she knew her side projects like the 1619 project would gain her undo flack from both sides of the isle ultimately she was offered the position for which she worked so hard to get and she turned them down and why who knows. but in her case the end (her being offered the position of tenure) justified the means ( in other words she made it) and all she had to do was step through the door and accept the position, But she choose not to and now she is back to square one. So was it worth it to fight so hard for your dream and then give it up on principle, or should she have sucked it up played the game and got to a place were her work would have been appreciated and praised for many years to come. I believe the later of the two would have been the right play here, by doing so she could have continued her own research into what ever she wanted all within the knowledge of knowing she would have been protected by tenure. But now she is starting at ground zero again and she will be looked upon as the one person who gave up tenure on principle and a lot of universities do not like the idea of offering tenure to someone and then to have them say no is an insult and a slap in the face for the facility and university that offered her the position, and her decision to not accept the tenure position will follow her no matter were she goes. Always remember in life you still have to play the game to get what you want and if you do not play by there rules you will not get what you want. everyone has to play this game for the ultimate goal and no one gets special treatment

  2. 👍😍Nikole Hannah-Jones is phenomenal & amazing! I’m so proud of her. I wish Maya Angelou was still alive to weigh in on this topic. Shame on UNC for being so racist and prejudice! They are disgusting! This is 2021 a whole new millennium and this mess needs to end! Her credentials speak loud and clear. To think that she is less than stellar and not deserving of the same compensation package and tenure of her white counterparts/colleagues because of her ethnicity and gender is antiquated, insulting and utterly absurd! 😡

  3. This privileged black woman had the audacity to compare her "oppression" as an American citizen, to those trying to escape the communist regime in Cuba! this self entitled perpetual victim thinks that she is worse off than those who get there electricity and water turned off every night at 7, can't fish in their own ocean can't make one penny of their own money, have no coffins for their dead, they hand you a body and you have to take it home without a car… they beat torture anyone who speaks out against the government. they control the music people can listen too… why do you think they build boats to escape? I don't see this woman trying to get to Cuba on a little boat…yet, HER oppression is worse than theirs… like how isn't everyone sick to their stomach by this awful woman?

  4. This profesor was denied tenure at that university yet they claim racism doesn’t exist how ironic. Then when you read the comments section the racism is confirm. They are not racist because they say so but their actions say otherwise. It’s like some of Trump supporters “he’s saying what we are thinking”….

  5. This "theorist" supports the Cuban regime's violence against demonstrators. She has been an outspoken supporter of the Cuban Communist Regime. Her & BLM are on the wrong side of this one. Go to Howard. You'll be right at home.

  6. Wow, amazing how toxic "racism" is. Everyone denies being a racist, yet, when you read some of these comments, makes you wonder if some of the people professing to be non-racists are really not racists and just lying to themselves and everybody else. Especially when they start blaming and calling out others as being racists and haters.
