As our friend Ashe Schow writes, the saga of Melissa Click continues:
After being fired by the University of Missouri for assaulting a student journalist during a protest and threatening to call for “muscle” to intimidate him, Click has not been able to go quietly into the unemployment line. First she claimed that she acted the way she did because she thought the student journalist with a camera might have had a gun. So her response to this was to try to get other students (the “muscle”) into harm’s way. Okay.
But now Click is back with a new claim. She now says she was fired due to “racial politics.”
“I’m a white lady. I’m an easy target,” Click told the Chronicle of Higher Education.
