@a_breakin_glass i mean, its worth remembering that tens of other academics probably applied for the same job and were turned down in favour of the self-published race scientist

@garfiald true. I'm wondering why exactly anyone would go for a race scientist who sucks this fucking obviously

@a_breakin_glass @garfiald Maybe it was the "variety in the marketplace of ideas" crowd having their heads so deeply up their asses they didn't notice they were hiring a crackpot. That's the most charitable interpretation I can muster.

@trickster @garfiald true, but plain racism doesn't explain why they got this guy instead of someone more dogwhistle-y

@a_breakin_glass @garfiald Fair enough. But if there was corruption from the top, maybe they were testing the waters, and see what they can get away with.
