Here’s the latest wrinkle in the campaign against Confederate monuments in Georgia:
“The Valdosta State University professor who recently called for ending all state Confederate memorials says the school – under pressure by officials – retaliated by closing his email account and freezing funds for his program on local lynching history.
VSU officials say there was no retaliation against adjunct sociology professor Mark Patrick George, who has since voluntary left for another job. But if he had stayed, he would have been “investigated” for sending his activist letters via his university email – a supposed use of “public resources for political purposes.” …
GTFO of Georgia, and don’t come back! We owe a tip of the hat to VSU alumni John Hall, Jr. for ridding us of this pest.
Note: OD publicized Professor George’s anti-Southern campaign in “Creative Loafing: Georgia Should End All Confederate Memorials” and “SCLC Agitates Against Confederate Memorials and Holidays.”
