Evidently from the last statement (“courtesy appointment”) she wasn’t a real professor but instead an “Alinskyist community organizer” teaching nonsense courses…
this is what passes for higher education these days.......SMDH
Dr. Melissa A. Click earned her Ph.D. from the Department of Communication at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Her research interests center on popular culture texts and audiences, particularly texts and audiences disdained in mainstream culture. Her work in this area is guided by audience studies, theories of gender and sexuality, and media literacy. Current research projects involve 50 Shades of Grey readers, the impact of social media in fans’ relationship with Lady Gaga, masculinity and male fans, messages about class and food in reality television programming, and messages about work in children’s television programs. Melissa is Vice-Chair of ICA’s Popular Communication Division and is Chair of the committee hosting the Console-ing Passions conference at the University of Missouri in April 2014.
Sounds like she majored in spells and hexes to me or more accurately politically correct gobbly guk.
basically a division that should be scrapped. I'm "for" the arts, but that is such a waste of money.
liberals aren't that responsible, humble, or committed to doing whats right. The liberal thing is self preservation, not self sacrifice. your way off on this one CHHALL3
Based on the update above-she did. Can't wait to see how this fits on her resume.
She ought to resign her citizenship and GTFO of America.
She did. Now that student needs to sue her for assault and threat of bodily harm.
Bubba, her "courtesy appointment" was in the Journalism Department. She is a professor in staff in the communications department, which she is still employed with at this time. That statement was extremely misleading.
For those saying she "resigned", read more carefully. She resigned? from an appointed position with the journalism dept as a reviewer of submitted papers ( no big deal) but still has her professor position in the communications dept. Typical leftist move - "Look I resigned and apologized, what more can I do?" She should be terminated from the university. Notice she did not apologize for trying to throw the reporters off campus, just for the way she tried to do it.

Hey! According to obama, it’s the law of the land. So suck it up buttercups, BTW, it’s been law under the 2nd amendment on the right to carry since 1791.
UT has gone to the dogs.. for years. breaks my heart. My family has roots there for decades (buildings named after family members, etc), but it has been eroded by liberalism and stupidity, such that there is little/no room for critical thinking or reason.
I thought the same thing, but the story doesn't say who were in the seats first.
A valid point. This type of problem can be easily handled, but those looking for discrimination around every corner see $$$ when a bit of politeness coukd take them a long way.
Everything has to escalate to a conflict. It's their culture.
It does make a difference When the tickets/seats were booked, IF that is how the airline books.then they load that way also. If they do not book by seat, but by capacity, then it should be first come first served when loading. Keep in mind, if there is OVER BOOKING, it is NOT the customers fault. As for the other 5, Not really their business. I would say, by the report, that their mouths got them removed, not their Color. Common courtesy should be the rule of the day.

I am even more shocked that it was a black man! Who’da thunk it…
Or an national Baptist Convention, a state Baptist Convention and a local Baptist Convention. (All of which are tax exempt).
The Church has always been the original big government.

perhaps now Rush will STOP backing the republicans that are really democrats and ensure he backs the ones that are there FOR the Constitution.
At this point in history, it’s no longer republicans against democrats, it’s the American People against them.
who do you want rush to let on,t an hour of yack time,& then get questioned by him?
Then you know he did when he got after John Kasich today and then connected that to the RINOs in hour 1 he compared the Establishment to the Democrats.
I listen to him everyday too
You can’t POSSIBLY listen to Rush everyday and say this. I have listened to him since the beginning and he doesn’t back anyone. He rails against the RINOS and country club establishment republicans constantly and always has. Not only that, he doesn’t back or endorse anyone this early in. He never has.
As a liberal, can I just say please please please please pretty please keep thinking that every Republican isn't conservative enough for your insane tea party ideals. Open those windows and let all the fresh air in. Nothing will rid this country of the stench of conservatism faster.

I assume the benevolent doj will investigate the travesty just like they are doing in South Carolina?
I don't see the same type of interaction. These punks are clearly engaged in a full out fight, not sitting like a sullen baby, refusing to move when told to.
These young men deserve a beating.

Hey doj, South Carolina has got this, there is no need to bring your racist administration into this.
Try fixing your IRS and oh yeah, chicago, detroit & baltimore cities before you worry about this issue that’s already being handled.
What do you think the unintended consequences of this will be? My bets are the school cops stop policing and leave the teachers to deal with problems on their own. Being a school cop from this point forward would be a cakewalk. You get to get a paycheck for just shrugging your shoulders all day.

Police force?? Thought kalifornia were against guns?
Not when it comes to the liberal politicians having their collective asses protected.
We are a powder keg, soaking in gasoline.
Yesterday some coworkers (who are or were against firearms) were talking about how much the local crimes keep going up. They seem to be having a change of heart after robbery hits close or closer to home.
I encouraged a Gun Safety course. Training by a Professional. Ladys should definitely consider the added protecting a Firearm gives you. I want my sisters safe from these animals. Angels & Home defense ammo for all.
The thing is, what do you think she'll do if the black students don't want the positions? I sure as hell wouldn't.

As long as she has Kansas Passport up to date.

This is why the media babes were NOT allowed to go in, give the men some damn privacy!

But he did so well 7 yrs ago with ALMOST 1.8% of the vote!

He most likely waited to receive the sub, to take the pic in front of the clerk on the counter to show proof it was there before he walked away and to ensure the clerk actually saw the mouse.
If the clerk would have noticed the mouse in the first place, I am sure they would have tossed the whole thing and no pic would have been taken and no story.
