DEI Instructor Fired By College For Not Being Woke Enough

Dr. Tabita Lee claims she was denied tenure and fired from DeAnza College on March 6 after failing to adhere to specific narratives on racial issues. Lee claims that she was punished in part for questioning certain anti-racism efforts and policies within the school.

“They said they wanted a black person to do this job. Apparently, I am the wrong kind of black,” Lee said according to FAIR

Lee also claims she was accused of “whitesplaining” during her first week on the job and promoting “white supremacy,” according to FAIR.

Lee told the Caller that she felt surprised by the chilly reception at DeAnza because she openly admitted during the hiring process that she didn’t consider herself “woke.”… (Read more)
