(London Daily Mail) An education blogger has been fired after deeming black studies ‘left-wing victimization claptrap’.

Naomi Schaefer Riley’s essay entitled ‘The Most Persuasive Case for Eliminating Black Studies? Just Read the Dissertations’ prompted a petition signed by 6,500 people calling for her dismissal from the Chronicle of Higher Education.

The lecturer’s 500-word post published on April 30 was a response to an earlier article which listed the dissertation topics of five PhD students, which ranged from the history of black midwifery and housing policy.
