Professor Robin Hayes, whose academic work focuses on race and diversity, says she was officially canned last year for telling students their class might be cancelled due to low enrollment – while a white male colleague accused of orgies with students was allowed to “quietly retire,” according to the Manhattan Federal Court claim.

The alleged wrongful termination came after years of complaints from Hayes, producer of a 2015 documentary called “Black and Cuba,” about getting worse treatment and fewer resources than white colleagues. She alleges they received “meaningful mentorship, post-hire support… [and] functional equipment.”

She was denied fair pay for a summer course on hip-hop she sought to create and a colleague told her that her work in media wouldn’t be counted toward tenure, Hayes claims in court papers.

Instead, one co-worker suggested tenure could be achieved if she published a book, adding it “doesn’t have to be that good,” Hayes charges.

The discrimination has done “long-term” damage to her career and left her “humiliated,” says Hayes, who is seeking unspecified damages.
The New School called the allegations “completely without merit.

So are you saying that she wasn't wrongfully terminated? She claims that she did not receive fair pay for her summer class on hip hop, and we all know how important the study of hip hop is to ones political science degree. She claims she was fired for telling her students that the class might be canceled due to low enrollment. Just what kind of left wing liberal arts college is this anyway? If not enough students were enrolling in her class, than they should have been forced to take her class. Make it mandatory, like 95% of the other tripe that the "students" get indoctrinated with these days at liberal arts colleges. Making the kids attend lectures from the straight white male bomb throwing domestic terrorists holdovers from the 60's, but not the black militant femi-nazi lesbian hardly seems fair. Does it? Sounds like an open and shut case to me.
