Princeton faculty accuse school of rampant ‘anti-blackness,’ issue list of 48 demands
More than 200 Princeton University faculty have signed a letter demanding nearly 50 initiatives to address what the scholars contend is rampant anti-blackness and racism that festers at the Ivy League institution.
“At this moment of massive global uprising in the name of racial justice, we the faculty—Black, Latinx, Asian, and members of all communities of color along with our white colleagues—call upon the University to take immediate concrete and material steps to openly and publicly acknowledge the way that anti-Black racism, and racism of any stripe, continue to thrive on its campus,” stated the demand letter.
The letter is dated July 4 and addressed to President Christopher Eisgruber and various provosts and deans. It joins a similar demand letter recently signed by students and alumni that calls on the school to pay reparations for slavery and abolish the campus police department.
“We call upon the administration to block the mechanisms that have allowed systemic racism to work, visibly and invisibly, in Princeton’s operations,” the faculty letter states.
The letter urges campus leaders to address nearly 50 “demands” broken into five categories: university-level, faculty-level, postdoc-level, graduate-level and undergraduate-level.
It is already getting criticism from some.
“Princeton faculty letter calls for eliminating academic freedom via a committee that would review all publications for racist thought (racist defined by the committee). It was issued on….July 4th,” points out writer Zaid Jilani on Twitter.
