Attempt to censor Prof. Kevin MacDonald of CSULB

The Southern Poverty Law Center is leading an all-out assault against sociology professor Kevin MacDonald. His crime? He writes about the delicate issues surrounding Jewish separatism in a multi-cultural society. In as much as his field is sociology it seems like an interesting and highly-relevant area of research today. But to the SPLC he is guilty of (yep, you guessed it) "hate." Hate of course is the thought crime the identities of the Left (blacks, gays, Jews) use to silence anyone who disagrees with them.

I have read Professor MacDonald's book The Culture of Critique and found it brilliant and exciting - exciting simply because he says things that are not generally allowed to be said - but obviously true or at least sensible.

The pressure on CSULB from wealthy Jewish and "civil-rights" groups is now enormous. They are right now holding the line on academic freedom but it is by no means certain they will be able to continue resisting.

Professor MacDonald has exaplains the campaign against him here.
