Journal Retracts Pro-Colonialism Essay Right Before Columbus Day

11th October 2017

Read it.

A journal retracted an essay defending colonialism on the Saturday before Columbus Day, alleging that the journal’s editor had received a threat.

Taylor & Francis, publisher of Third World Quarterly, withdrew “The Case for Colonialism” because of “serious and credible threats of personal violence” to journal editor Shahid Qatir, reported The Chronicle of Higher Education. Bruce Gilley, the Portland State University political science professor who authored the piece, had asked for its withdrawal.

He’ll still be tagged as a Bad White Person forevermore.
