To our initial "List of People Canceled in Post-George-Floyd Antiracism Terror," published June 11, can now be added the following individuals:
University of Chicago professor of economics Harald Uhlig was placed on leave from his role as editor of the Journal of Political Economy following "accusations of discriminatory conduct in a classroom setting." Uhlig also had his contract with the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago canceled after a Fed spokeswoman said the bank determined "that his views are not compatible with the Chicago Fed's values and our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion."
St. John's University assistant fencing coach Boris Vaksman was fired "after making derogatory remarks about black people in a private lesson" according to "what appears to be an edited video," the New York Times reported.
Stephen A. Huffman was dismissed by TeamHealth from his job as an emergency room doctor in Ohio after publicly speculating about why blacks have been hit particularly hard by Covid-19.
The CEO of Crisis Text Line, Nancy Lublin, was "ousted by the nonprofit's board of directors on Friday, in response to allegations of racism and mistreating staff," Axios reported. Lublin's mental-health resource has saved literally hundreds, perhaps thousands of lives. The board said that "at least two members of the board will be replaced with black, indigenous, or persons of color candidates" and "Anti-racist trainings for board members will begin in July."
A Canadian television personality, Jessica Mulroney, had her show, "I Do, Redo," canceled by its Canadian network after a blogger accused her of exhibiting "white privilege," the New York Post reported.
Barbara Fedida, an ABC News executive, was placed on "administrative leave" after what a HuffPost article based on unnamed sources described as "a long pattern of insensitive statements, including racist comments." The HuffPost article said "Fedida issued a statement through her lawyer calling the claims "incredibly misleading" and saying she'd "been a champion for increased diversity."
