Fresno State pulls job offer after professor candidate fakes black, Latino heritage

Fresno State has a racist Administration.  Do not look at their phony words against racism, look at their policies.  If it wasn’t racism, why do job applicants lie about their race to get a job?

“California State University, Fresno has rescinded a faculty position offer to a graduate student candidate who allegedly misrepresented her identity, university officials said Thursday.

CV Vitolo-Haddad, currently a PhD candidate in journalism and mass communication at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, had been conditionally offered a tenure-track position at the Central Valley campus of the California State University, pending a background check, the university said.

But after allegations surfaced that Vitolo-Haddad, who uses the gender pronoun they, had identified as Black and Latinx without belonging to either group, the university reversed course.

The policy is racist—asking race on a job application is racist.  What does race have to do with being a quality educator, if your intended goal is to hire people based on race, not abilities?  Looks to me like the head of the college and those in the hiring process need to be suspended without pay and their credentials suspended as well.  Racism has no place in government or schools—Fresno State by it actions proves it is a racist haven.  Shame on them—and the Governor for allowing racism to be the policy of the State College and University system.  He supports Prop. 16, a racist effort to enroll students based on race.  This is California in 2020, not Alabama in 1950.

California State University, Fresno has rescinded a faculty position offer to a graduate student candidate who allegedly misrepresented her identity, university officials said Thursday.

CV Vitolo-Haddad, currently a PhD candidate in journalism and mass communication at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, had been conditionally offered a tenure-track position at the Central Valley campus of the California State University, pending a background check, the university said.

But after allegations surfaced that Vitolo-Haddad, who uses the gender pronoun they, had identified as Black and Latinx without belonging to either group, the university reversed course.

An anonymous post on the blogging platform Medium this month raised questions about Vitolo-Haddad’s identity after George Washington University professor Jessica Krug acknowledged she had for years falsely claimed to be Black.

Here’s more from the Los Angeles Times.

    I guess They saw the success of Elizabeth Warren and wanted to follow Them’s hero. If They is legally able to choose what sex Them are why not race? We are going down a rabbit hole of no return.

  2. It is in part the “one drop” syndrome /////

    The golfer Woods is predominately Asian. Yet he was embraced as “black” ……

    Go figure.

    Understand the prejudice for anti Anglo culture is pervasive through out colleges and particularly in those who are government run.

    So the question becomes one, are you surprised at this? Remember if you voted Democrat you are responsible.

  3. Can’t get into a “woke” college? Easy. Pretend your great-grandfather was born into a group that he, poor soul, did not have the wit to realize would confer his offspring superiority in a woke world. Half-breed, or even octoroon, were not-so-socially acceptable in great-grandad’s day, so who knew? Why, the family secret whispered down to you.

    Partial color is best. Partial ethnic group, not a race, is pretty good, too.

    Or double down. Great-grandad was a Blackfoot, who married a Santo Domingan. The following generations diluted that powerful mix, but it’s hidden in your genes or maybe your jeans.

    It won’t be long before your SAT test scores will be meaningless; only your DNA test qualifies you for higher education.
