This is my response to the Yale Graduate School’s request for statements about what Diversity in Graduate Education means to me, ahead of their Diversity Town Hall on December 9th, 2019, at 3 pm:
I conceptualize Diversity as meaning that the Yale Administration of the Graduate School, including Grad School Dean Lynn Cooley and Grad School Diversity Dean and Grad School Title IX Coordinator Michelle Nearon, would NOT have participated in the Living or Napping While Black Hate Crime Hoax against me, which was a campaign to publicly shame me for my mental health disabilities by grossly violating my privacy.
Diversity in Grad School Education means that the Yale Admin would NOT have allowed me to be terrorized in my isolated dorm room for months, which was specially selected for me, b/c of my severe PTSD, and stalked across campus, while not only standing by and doing nothing, but actually assisting my tormentors in targeting me, based upon my race, sex, disability, and age.
Diversity in Graduate School Education means not having the Yale Admin choose to participate in the Living or Napping While Black Hate Crime Hoax, because I refused their Maoist struggle sessions as punishment for having defended the Federal Civil Rights, the religious expression rights, of an Evangelical black man at Yale, our only POC job candidate for a tenure track Assistant Professor position.
Diversity in Graduate Education means NOT having Yale illegally release my personal information to my tormentors, including my mental health history at Yale. Diversity in Graduate Education to me means NOT having the Yale Administration repeatedly tell disgusting lies about me, in an effort to destroy my life and lifelong human and civil rights academic and legal careers, and drive me to suicide, because I’m a civil libertarian who defends the Federal Civil Rights of Evangelical black men, and because they consider this to be an un Woke position.
The Yale Administration, including Yale VP of Student Life Kimberly Goff-Crews made it more than abundantly clear to me that, as an older, non traditional, low socio-economic status white woman student with mental health disabilities, that I do NOT belong at Yale, I am NOT welcome at Yale, and I will NOT be made safe on Yale’s campus. In fact, the Yale Administration and Police went out of their way to retaliate against me for asserting my Federal Civil Rights. The Yale Administration and Police continue to violate my Federal Civil Rights to this day.
If the Yale Administration actually cared about making students of color safe on campus, then Yale would have created a Title VI Office on campus, but the Yale Administration does NOT actually care about making students of color safe on campus; the Yale Administration only cares about denying accused students and faculty their due process rights, so that they can throw the accused under the bus to cover up their own wrongdoing, as they did to me.
I cannot even tell you how many times I almost committed suicide, because of what the Yale Administration did to me. My life has been completely destroyed. I had to flee Yale’s campus for my life while being taunted by a mob. I had to go into hiding for more than a year, and I am still more or less in hiding.
The entire Yale Administration, including Yale President Peter Salovey, should resign in abject shame for what they did to me. In July, 2018, Yale’s General Counsel admitted that there was absolutely NO reason to think that I had ever acted out of racial animus or bias in any way, shape, or form. In August, 2018, Yale President Peter Salovey made his grossly defamatory, illegal, and immoral statement about me that put my life in grave danger and that precluded the possibility of my receiving a fair hearing. I know for a fact that he was told by persons inside the Yale Administration that his statement would destroy and endanger my life.
That’s what Diversity in Graduate School Education at Yale in fact meant to my life. You should all be ashamed of yourselves for what you did. If any of you had even an ounce of integrity, you would tell the truth about the Living or Napping While Black Hate Crime Hoax at Yale, but I know that you don’t actually care if you get an innocent civil rights activist killed or destroy her lifelong career.
