One of the greatest thinkers of our time
I’m sure all the people who get into a lifetime of debt going to universities in America feel a little better knowing that most of their money went to parasites like this.
A guest speaker at the University of Michigan received $20,000 for a lecture on Critical Race Theory, which translated into $266 per minute.
That calculation comes from The Federalist’s reporting. The outlet obtained a contract between the University of Michigan and Beverly Daniel Tatum — a clinical psychologist and president emerita of Spelman College — for a sixty to seventy-five minute speaking engagement that occurred via Zoom on September 9.
“When we even think about the pushback against Critical Race Theory, it’s really a social ‘shh, don’t talk about it.’ Right?” The Federalist quoted Tatum as saying. “That there is [sic] so many cues in the environment to teach us at an early age [that] this is a toxic subject. People don’t want to hear about it.”
Campus Reform has reported on several instances of woke or “anti-racist” speakers being paid exorbitant fees to deliver lectures.
For example, the University of Michigan also paid Ibram X. Kendi $20,000 last year to deliver a one-hour speech.
Tatum recommended Kendi’s How to Be Racist book during her talk.
Additionally, the Oregon Department of Education paid $50,000 to “1619 Project” founder Nikole Hannah-Jones for two virtual speeches. The money was generated by drawing funds from a program meant to address absenteeism among disadvantaged students.
