Maine University asks students, staff to sign statement supporting BLM

The University of Southern Maine is asking students and faculty to sign a “Black Lives Matter Statement and Antiracism Pledge.”

The pledge cites Ibram Kendi, who is credited with popularizing the concept of “antiracism.”

We stand in solidarity with those who are working for justice and change. And we invite you to join us in pledging to be a practicing antiracist at the University of Southern Maine and in all aspects of your life. We believe, as Ibram Kendi writes, that “the only way to undo racism is to constantly identify it and describe it — and then dismantle it.”

The University will then post a public list of those who signed.

Those who don’t sign may face retaliation.

John Eastman, senior fellow at Claremont Institute joined guest host Mike Huckabee and weighs in on whether that is even legal.
