One of the leaders of the movement America’s police officers say has put them in the cross hairs will be teaching at Yale Divinity School this fall.
#BlackLivesMatter activist Deray McKesson will teach “Transformational Leadership in the #BlackLivesMatter Movement,” as part of the school’s “Transformational Leadership for Church and Society” program.
“Yale has a long tradition of training individuals to lead in churches, institutions of higher learning, and society. We envision this new program as a means to bring students into contact with proven leaders who will challenge them not only to think about leading in new and creative ways but inspire them to reach beyond their current aspirations,” Yale Divinity School Dean Greg Sterling said in a statement.
Not everyone is thrilled.
“This is a guy who has made a living out of race hustling, of dividing people by skin color, making totally unfounded, stupid claims, who doesn’t appear particularly erudite,” said Tucker Carlson on Saturday’s Fox and Friends.
Yale student Aryssa Damron joined Carlson on the program to express her disdain for the project.
“The other teachers teaching the other courses at divinity school are senators and reverends, or Yale alumni, and yet we have this random Twitter star teaching a course because Beyonce follows him on Twitter maybe,” she said.
According to McKesson’s LinkedIn profile, his only teaching experience was between May 2007 and June 2009, when he was a middle school math teacher.
“I hate seeing that Yale is creating leaders who are going to divide instead of leaders who are going to unite,” said Damron, a sophomore at Yale.
Carlson noted that McKesson’s teaching gig was one more liberal step by a university that is synonymous with liberalism.
“Does this devalue the Yale brand?” he asked. “Or is there anything that could devalue the brand of Yale in the minds of Americans?”
