I Support ‘Hire & Fire At Will’, But…

I also support Freedom of Speech, as you know. Free Speech trumps Hire & Fire.

University of Cincinnati refuses to renew contract of instructor who used the term "Chinese virus" (reclaimthenet.org)

The University of Cincinnati has not renewed the contract of a faculty member who used the phrase “Chinese virus” in an email to a student last year. The university’s administration viewed the phrase as xenophobic.

The University is wrong. But even if it were correct, making assumptions on whether or not a person may be xenophobic is wrong. And I’ll go even farther. If Uecker is a xenophobe: so what?

I don’t support the Thought Police in any environment, including at school.
