Officials at Palm Beach Atlantic University fired Professor Sam Joeckel for teaching about racial justice
I just sent the following message to PBA:
I have been following the story of your professor Sam Joeckel and learned this morning he was fired. I know there is a lot of fear and pressure politically and financially. As one imperfect person trying to follow Jesus to another, please know as Dr. King said “ the time is always right to do what is right”. Be encouraged it is never too late to start doing the right thing and as you know our God is bigger than any political pressure or intimidation or fear or suffering - I pray God gives your leadership wisdom and conviction and then the needed courage and humility to rehire him and do the right thing. It is never too late and it urgently matters.
Heartbreaking, frustrating, and infuriating. CRT and critical thinking about the United States and our history, systems, etc. just continues to expose white fragility.

So very discouraging!
Unwanted, undeserved but sadly expected. Apparently "The Glory of the South" lives on...
