An employee at an exclusive Massachusetts college has resigned after declining to play along with the Critical Race Theory theatrics. One of “which frames any reluctance or discomfort at these discussions as a white power play to escape accountability.” The CRT term for this is white fragility.
Jodi Shaw, forced to participate in various mandated training, took to YouTube and became a controversial figure. After she appeared on Tucker Carlson, the University (unhappy with its #wokeness being exposed on a national stage) began the process of railroading her out of her job.
Under the guise of racial progress, Smith College has created a racially hostile environment in which individual acts of discrimination and hostility flourish. In this environment, people’s worth as human beings, and the degree to which they deserve to be treated with dignity and respect, is determined by the color of their skin.

Jodi’s Go Fund me has successfully covered her lost salary for several years, so she’s not in a bad place. In fact, she’s in a great place. She can continue to be honest about the CRT culture and its racist and Marxist foundations free of the campus pressure politics as a whistleblower and insider.
