Sign the Petition Against Biased, Radical Education

Take Action       May 12, 2017 1:23 AMBy:        0 comments

Dear Texas A&M Board of Regents, Chancellor Sharp, and Fellow Aggie Supporters:

I was outraged to learn of the racist, violent, and radical ideology preached to students by Texas A&M Professor Tommy Curry. But it was absolutely shocking to read the Texas A&M President’s lackluster and passive response to Curry’s egregious message of violence and hate.

President Young claims to “stand against the advocacy of violence, hate, and killing,” yet he continues to support Professor Curry’s dangerous indoctrination of young students, engraining impressionable pupils with hate against whites and an appreciation for violence. I fear, if allowed to continue, this rhetoric and ideology will have catastrophic consequences.

Academic freedom should never be extended to faculty that intentionally incite violence, especially racially-motivated violence, regardless of the race targeted. While such views may and often should be studied, they should never be promoted by faculty and staff. Any university employee who promotes such a view should be fired. And any university leader who allows such a view to be promoted should likewise be fired.

In light of the dismaying circumstances, I request that you immediately fire Professor Curry and President Young.

I pledge to withhold all donations to Texas A&M University, the Association of Former Students, the 12th Man Foundation, and the Texas A&M Foundation unless these problems are corrected.
