A Yale student screamed like a banshee at her professor for not providing a “safe place” for the students. The professor, Master of Silliman College, Nicholas Christakis is the husband of Erika Christakis. Wait until you hear why.
Yale University has been hit by controversy in the past week after professor Erika Christakis, associate headmaster of the school’s Silliman College, sent an email to the college’s members suggesting that they shouldn’t be overly sensitive about Halloween costumes that engage in “cultural appropriation.” Instead, Christakis encouraged students to tolerate them and avoid trying to censor expression.
“Is there no room anymore for a child or young person to be a little bit obnoxious … a little bit inappropriate or provocative or, yes, offensive?” Christakis wrote. “American universities were once a safe space not only for maturation but also for a certain regressive, or even transgressive, experience; increasingly, it seems, they have become places of censure and prohibition.”
The students are demanding that both professors be fired – that they lost their livelihood for expressing their free speech.
