UT-Austin Antifa “Disciplines” Black Sociologist

When there are no conservatives available, the Left turns on its own. “An Antifa group at the University of Texas at Austin is calling for ‘revolutionary violence’ against assistant professor Robert L. Reece after he wrote a column running afoul of feminist dogma,” Matthew Vadum writes in The American Spectator. “Reece isn’t the kind of academic that radical leftists typically attack.”

“Reece checks so many politically correct boxes that he’d normally be immune from criticism. He’s a young black sociologist from a poor community in Mississippi cotton country, deeply involved in issues of intense interest to the Left. He writes for a publication of the race-obsessed, far-left Southern Poverty Law Center. His academic research ‘revolves around the question “What is race?” as well as inquiries into the historical origins of racial inequality, colorism/skin tone stratification, and racial fluidity.'”

“Reece’s problems began when he wrote a March 20 article for Vox, ‘How men are adjusting to the #MeToo era: “This is going to take a really long time.”‘ The piece is subtitled, ‘Men discuss the gray areas of intimate encounters.'”

“Reece discusses his course ‘Masculinities in America,’ in which ‘topics like trans men, female masculinity, men’s place in feminist discourse, and, finally, sexual violence, assault, and consent’ are discussed.”
