Is it true that
intellectual dishonesty would get anyone canned from a tenured university position.
Maybe. but being an unmitigated racist asshat is apparently not.
Let’s see if the APA tears him an asshole or two.
What is the APA and why would we care?
The answer to Greg’s question is No. Well, maybe sometimes it does,but not always.
Doesn’t seem the case for this racist Harvard professor.
This is the APA.
Specifically, section 3.03 of the APA Ethics Code:
“3.03 Other Harassment
Psychologists do not knowingly engage in behavior that is harassing or demeaning to persons with whom they interact in their work based on factors such as those persons’ age, gender, gender identity, race, ethnicity, culture, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, disability, language, or socioeconomic status.”
I think people are forgetting how many people are left over from when things like racism, sexism, and homophobia were official doctrines in higher education. Their bias doesn’t dissapear when the regulations show up, they just have to try and hide it better (or not, in this case).
And they don’t really have to hide it that much, and the effects last for a couple/few generations.
