Yesterday Professor George Yancy of Emory University wrote a piece in The New York Times called I Am A Dangerous Professor. In it, he describes how he found out that he had been placed on a Professor Watch List. His students told him that he was on it. They were afraid for him—a professor and a Black man—anxious about what it would mean for him to be on such a list.
On the watchlist is a picture of Professor Yancy as well as links to articles that were written about a piece he wrote called, Dear White America, which was published by The New York Times. In this challenging and provocative piece, Yancy addresses white people with love and a definite belief that by merely being white, one is privileged and, hence, racist.
