Racism Has Its Costs

Evergreen State College has settled a tort claim against it from embattled Professor Bret Weinstein and his wife, Professor Heather Heying, for $500,000, according to an email sent to faculty Friday evening.
“They have resigned from their faculty positions at Evergreen, effective today. The college will pay them a total of $450,000 and contribute an additional $50,000 toward their attorney fees,” according to the email, sent by John Carmichael, chief of staff and secretary to the board of trustees.

The underlying claim was because the college declared a "Day of Absence," telling white students and faculty they should stay off campus, but still denies that this was racist.  As near as I can tell, Weinstein was a liberal, blindsided by progressive racism.
