Lawmakers Want To Privatize Evergreen State, Plan Civil Rights Investigation Over Day Without Whites


By Rob Shimshock

Washington lawmakers plan to discuss legislation Thursday to privatize Evergreen State College, which dominated headlines recently for hosting an event segregating white and black students, as well as caving to protester demands.

Republican State Rep. Matt Manweller is leading the effort to strip Evergreen State of $24 million in state appropriations after protests rocked the Olympia, Washington campus in late May, according to Campus Reform.

“[Evergreen State students and faculty] are trying to re-institute a Jim Crow approach to education that Americans rejected over 50 years ago,” said the Republican state representative to Campus Reform. “We must never go back to a segregated society—whether it be drinking fountains, buses, or school buildings.” (RELATED: ‘It’s Life Or Death For Us’: Students Protest Racism, Police Brutality At College [VIDEO])

Manweller was referring to Evergreen’s “Day of Absence,” on which campus activists told white students and faculty to leave campus. While campus was relatively calm during that day in April, professor Bret Weinstein’s refusal to take part in the event and allegations of racial bias resulted in May protests.



“The administration bears direct responsibility for this situation,” continued the representative to Campus Reform. “They hired the professors who have elevated the pseudo-science of ‘social justice’ to a religious movement. Now all dissent is crushed by threats of violence or actual violence.”

Representatives will introduce the bill to deprive Evergreen State of state funding alongside a letter directed at Washington state’s Human Rights Commission to investigate possible civil rights infractions at Evergreen.

Manweller said he thinks Democrats will block his bill to defund Evergreen in an email to The Daily Caller News Foundation.

“However, [Republicans control] the capital budget, so there’s a very realistic possibility that we could strip the $24 million in funding from the University,” said the state representative to TheDCNF. “The wildcard is the letter to the human rights commission demanding an investigation for violations of civil rights laws. If they take it seriously that could lead to some tangible results. If they shut everything under the rug, then no.”

TheDCNF reached out to Evergreen State College for comment, but received none in time for publication.
