Yale causes uproar with seminar by diversity trainer who said the FBI inflates antisemitism figures, the written word is white supremacy and punctuality is a white trait: Hired by professor who accused Native American student of racism

A law professor who was caught on tape pressuring a Native American student to apologize for ‘trap house’ party, pushed Yale to host a diversity trainer who reportedly told students anti-Semitism is a form of ‘anti-blackness’ and that the FBI artificially inflates hate crimes against Jews.

Yale’s director of diversity and inclusion Yaseen Eldik invited ‘kinky’ sex education and diversity trainer Ericka Hart to the university after the board ‘publicly expressed’ it would ‘implement implicit bias and antiracism training.’ 

The Ivy League school had seen its fair share of racial controversies, including Eldik telling a Native American story to apologize for using the term ‘trap house’ the same day as Hart’s presentation.  

Hart’s training was advertised as ‘training which galvanizes audiences to explore their own biases, share in their experience of identity and offer actionable steps on how each individual can integrate a social and racial justice ethic in their own lives for a more equitable and just world.’ 

Attendants wrote in a review that Hart was asked to provide ‘concrete ideas of next steps to promote antiracism and diversity.’ 

Hart’s presentation allegedly dealt with ‘pretty privilege’ and ‘fatphobia.’ 

When a Yale Law Review journal editor asked her why her presentation dealt with those types of topics instead of anti-Semitism, Hart allegedly replied that she did because she covered anti-blackness and there are some black Jews, according to the Washington Free Beacon

‘She basically said anti-Semitism is a subset of anti-blackness,’ the unidentified editor told the Free Beacon said. 

‘She didn’t recognize there could be anti-Semitism against white people.’

A review by journal editors and student attendants confirmed this statement.
