People should be emailing his boss. Not that he’ll do anything.

after all, the staff signed a ‘diversity pledge’.

Through senior faculty colleagues at URI I am told that some very-high-level meetings are going on now about what to do with this guy. The president’s office phone has been ringing off the hook all day.

BTW, contrary to some comments I have seen, his rank is Assistant Professor and as such he does not have tenure. (This was also confirmed to me.)

This would make it easier to fire him, so we’ll see. Public pressure helps.

Remember that to gain tenure, he will most likely (different universities have different rules on this) have to get a majority of votes of his fellow faculty in the History Department. Given that his department is probably 95% far left, he probably is just trying to mollify his ranking faculty.
