White Professor Sues HBCU Over Reverse Discrimination

A white professor is accusing Alabama State University, an Historically Black College, of discriminating against him and his partner after they blew the whistle on racialAlabama State.jpg preferences at the school.

Professor John Garland filed suit against the university after allegedly being singled out for calling attention to reverse discrimination at the school.

According to Dr. Garland, he “observed instances where applicants were not seriously considered for employment because of their race.”

Dr. Garland claims to have overheard officials at the university say only African American faculty were “suited to our type of institution.” On another occasion, Garland says he heard members of a search committee say they were looking for a candidate who was both female and black.

Dr. Garland says once he spoke out against this discrimination, he was immediately retaliated against by university officials. He claims he was demoted to a job that paid $23,000 less and his biography information was scrubbed from the university’s website. Dr. Garland also alleges that he was placed in an office without a computer, mail service, filing cabinets, or phone extension.

Ironically, Garland’s partner, Steven B. Chesbro, is the only dean at the school who is not black, has also filed a discrimination lawsuit with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Both Garland and Chesbro claim that after they accused ASU of discrimination, they were investigated and the school questioned others about their same sεx relationship.

Wayne Sabel, an attorney representing both Garland and Chesbro, says the men have tried to meet the school halfway.

“That’s why we have tried for more than a year to have a meaningful conversation with ASU,” Sabel said. “We’ve suggested mediation on a number of occasions. Unfortunately, they have shown absolutely no interest in trying to resolve the case without litigation.

ASU officials did not comment on the allegations made by Garland and Chesbro.
