Gay, white professor sues historically black university for discrimination
Campus Reform ^ | 19 Jun 2014 | Kaitlyn Schallhorn

Posted on 06/19/2014 9:45:00 AM PDT by mandaladon

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.

“[Garland’s supervisor] expressed his opinion, stated or implied, that Dr. Garland did not belong at the University and was not ‘suited to [the University’s] 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...

ASU will soon be told which minority outranks them in the hierarchy.

I can see it all from my position at the very bottom.

Since there’s no way for them both to lose, I’m hoping Pokeahontas wins just for the fireworks that will surely ensue.

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.

Don’t know. You should submit the question to a true authority on the matter - BHO

Ask T.R Knight and Isaiah Washington of “Grey’s Anatomy” fame. Gay beats Black.

Are there any historically black colleges which “grant” degrees whose degrees are worth a damn?

Pass the popcorn indeed. If we’re lucky, we’ll get some quotes from some militant black studies professor calling the gay professor a “white faggot” or something like that.

Normally, I’d root for the anti segregationist, but I don’t believe that anyone with severe mental disorders should be teaching.

Between queer whites and living whites you have forgotten, mexicans, terrorists, deserters, snails, lizards, owls, tadpoles, fungii and all others. Whites are at the bottom.

I dunno - the Klan With A Tan has the Justice Department but the Rump Rangers own the media. I got a twenny on the latter but I'm demanding points. Over and under. So to speak.

There was a case several years ago where a government employee in Washington almost lost his job because he used the word "niggardly," but he didn't get fired because he was a homosexual.

Of course the word "niggardly" is completely unrelated to the "N word."

And the white man has a Native American tribal affiliation. Better get out the calculator!

The homos are way more politically savvy than blacks. 2% or the population that is truly gay has managed to over rule any and all laws without going through a legislative process or a civil war. The blacks have Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton pimping out their misery to shakedown corporations for money.

By the way. How many Africans are at this college? Are there any White African Americans?

Why you .... you gender normative ... racis!

Where are the tragic Native American Homosexuals in your otherwise useful victim ranking list? Sure, forget the massive contributions Gay Choctaw Braves have made to this great nation of ours. At the bottom of every pile of accomplished Native Americans, there was a Gay, Choctaw Brave ... with a Ph.D, and a Gay Ph.D. partner certified by the sovereign State of Maryland.

Note to Dean from WH:
This Injun Dude be on the down-low but be OK since he married to other white dude on the down-low. Barry and Reggie say,
"Hey, Hey!
Be Down Low, Be OK.
Brothers gotta tak'em
All the way! "
