Depend upon it, sir, when a man knows he is to be hanged in a fortnight, it concentrates his mind wonderfully.
This is a warning to wokesters!
It thus looks pretty likely that with accumulated postjudgment interest, Oberlin will have to fork over in excess of $34 million to the Gibson family. This is on top of the millions Oberlin has spent on attorneys fees, and millions more that the negative publicity has and will likely cost Oberlin. The eight-figure disaster should serve as a timely object lesson to universities and administrators: surrendering to wokeism and cancel culture (in Oberlin’s case, embracing and participating in it) can have very real, very expensive repercussions.
Administrators would be wise, indeed, to heed this warning. Focus on EDUCATION, not wokeism!
And for students, suing the school is a great way to pay for your education!
