On Tuesday, the Chronicle of Higher Education severed ties with a blogger that dismissed black studies as "left-wing victimization clap-trap" but that hasn't stopped her from hating on black studies. Naomi Schaefer Riley, posted her commentary, called "The Most Persuasive Case for Eliminating Black Studies? Just Read the Dissertations," on The Chronicle's Brainstorm blog on April 30. She's continued to take stabs at black studies and has an even bigger platform now. Most recently she said "black studies is a cause, not a course of study."
