Oberlin College: Chairman of Trustees Reacts to Anti-Semitic Comments by Professor

"In a screenshot of a December 2014 post, she posted a meme of a reptilian-looking Jacob Rothschild — he looks a little like Mr. Burns on The Simpsons — with the text, “Hello there, my name is Jacob Rothschild. My family is worth 500 trillion dollars. We own nearly every central bank in the world. We financed both sides of every war since Napoleon. We own your news, the media, your oil, and your government.” In her post, Professor Karega-Mason comments, “Yep. This family and several others. Which is why I’m not concerned with or interested in any discussions or plans of action that don’t get at things from the top-down.”

Not that long ago UCI was considered the most antisemitic school in the country. Now it is not event in the top ten. This episode shows how much worse it is. Before the worst on campus were the Muslim stdents, organized in the MSU. Now, it is the teachers and professors, which is worse.
They are enabled by cowardly administrators.
