Well, the fear of losing their jobs or being uncomfortable if student activists such as BLM give them a hard time. Notice these college administrators aren’t afraid of pissing off voters, taxpayers or legislators. Oh, no. They’re afraid of having their names or pics in the news or on FB, being touted as racists or some other -ist by activists who are conducting a Al Sharpton Shakedown. There’s gold in them thar colleges.
The most irritating part of all this is that our own colleges, UK, UK WVU, etc haven’t done a thing to help those of us in Eastern Kentucky who are being hammered by Obama and his coalition of greenie power-grabbers. In fact, our own colleges put out “reports” and “studies” and “papers” about how bad coal is or logging sucks or we’re just a bunch of dumbass Scot-Irish descendants and that explains everything, why we’re dumb or anti-establishment or have bad teeth or whatever. Our newspapers dutifully follow suit. We have the MSM vilifying and mocking us at every whim, seems like somebody should stick up for US..
You know what else I smell here, besides fear? I smell job security for the college administrators, for the relevant faculty and for students of the “Studies” programs who won’t get jobs in anything but taxpayer-subsidized crap like this.
