Retaliation by ‘black power’ dean, evidence destroyed
Only white people can be racist, huh?
A state appeals court upheld a jury verdict of nearly $5 million – three-quarters of thatpunitive damages – against an historically black college for discriminating against a white employee.
One of its many sins that were meticulously laid out by the court? Deleting incriminating emails from the senior official who targeted the white employee.
Beverly Wilkins, a white woman from a poor family, steadily rose through the ranks of Missouri’s Harris-Stowe State University, from adjunct to full-time instructor (off the tenure track). She had regular contract renewals for eight years and “excellent reviews” within her majority-black Teacher Education Department, according to the appeals court’s summary.
