Via Daily Caller:
Concerned Student 1950, the University of Missouri (MU) black activist group that kicked off a national wave of campus protests last fall, has released a statement claiming suspended professor Melissa Click is a civil rights martyr and victim of violence.
Click is the MU communications professor who famously accosted a student journalist and called for “muscle” to prevent them from covering a campus demonstration. On Monday, Click was charged with misdemeanor assault for her action, and on Wednesday the school suspended her.
Now, Concerned Student 1950, which organized the protest Click was trying to exclude the press from, is denouncing the way Click is being treated. The group says she is wrongly being labeled a criminal by oppressive authorities unwilling to dismantle racism on campus.
