After being fired by the University of Missouri for assaulting a student journalist during a protest and threatening to call for "muscle" to intimidate him, Click has not been able to go quietly into the unemployment line. First she claimed that she acted the way she did because she thought the student journalist with a camera might have had a gun. So her response to this was to try to get other students (the "muscle") into harm's way. Okay. But now Click is back with a new claim. She now says she was fired due to "racial politics." "I'm a white lady. I'm an easy target," Click told the Chronicle of Higher Education.Do you think Melissa Click is going crazy?
Melissa Click adds to her borderline nutty list of excuses for her poor behavior at the University of Missouri when she was inciting violence and asking for "muscle" to remove people from her safe space protest. Melissa Click fired for being a white lady? I have officially lost my mind. I thought she was crazy, but now I believe that it's me. What was I thinking? Why was she even hired? She's white, she should've been fired twice before she was even hired. I didn't know color had anything to do with her job. I didn't know major universities fired people for being a certain color. I suppose this has NOTHING to do with her being a professor at a college and trying to get people beat up or thrown around. All during a stupid protest that was literally the most pointless thing I've ever seen. Just go to work, teach your classes, then go home and spend time with friends and family. Life isn't about protests, but being better and above that and accomplishing goals without annoying everyone else.
