A white professor is suing Alabama State University (ASU) over claims the historically black university discriminated against him and his partner based on their race and sexual orientation.
According to the lawsuit filed in federal court on June 11, Dr. John Garland is suing the ASU and eight current and former employees for racially discriminating against applicants for university positions and subsequently targeting him when he retaliated against those practices.
[Garlands supervisor] expressed his opinion, stated or implied, that Dr. Garland did not belong at the University and was not suited to [the Universitys] type of students because Dr. Garland is not African-American, the lawsuit states. Garland, who is a member of the Choctaw Nation but is identified as white by colleagues, was hired by the university in August 2008 as an adjunct professor. In January 2009, Garland was rehired as an assistant professor for the Master of Rehabilitation Counseling Program in the Department of Rehabilitation Studies in the College of Health Sciences (COHS).
His white same-sex partner, Dr. Steven Chesbro, was hired at the university around that time. They legally married in Maryland in February 2013.
Chesbro is currently dean of COHS, which the lawsuit alleges that students and faculty commonly refer to as the White House. He has an Equal Employment Opportunity Commission charge filed against the university.

Faggotry trumps race. I think.
I am glad I just got in a new supply of popcorn. It will be interesting to watch the “Aggrieved Groups” duke it out.
I know, right?!
Kind of like watching Al Quaeda and ISIL duke it out...
I can see it all from my position at the very bottom.
Thanks for posting the article.
Be interesting to see how this case goes.
Ah, the sword of social justice, swinging back around on itself.
Who could have possibly seen this coming? Heee
Whoa break out the popcorn!
Since there’s no way for them both to lose, I’m hoping Pokeahontas wins just for the fireworks that will surely ensue.
It does now
Should be interesting. Do blacks trump gays, or do gays trump blacks.
> The wave of the future....minorities suing minorities...I thought only Whites discriminated.
Hey pop some popcorn, pull up a seat, and watch the festivities begin. More fun than going to watch Christian movies during matinee times on Friday...
I think that gay trumps black. I seem to remember thinking that in reaction to an article, but can’t find it.
Still, this should be interesting to watch.
> Should be interesting. Do blacks trump gays, or do gays trump blacks.
Don’t know. You should submit the question to a true authority on the matter - BHO
Queer blacks uber alles.
The queer whites.
Then whatever whites are still alive.
Ask T.R Knight and Isaiah Washington of Greys Anatomy fame. Gay beats Black.
