Walter Block is a misogynist and a racist who hides behind economic theories that are outdated and stupid as shit.

Walter block horrifically misrepresents his student body. I believe he definitely holds bias towards students of color.

To those who sign,
You are being mislead. The absurdity of these hateful allegations shows
a kind of ignorance so deep that it is difficult to think there is not an
unspeakably malevolent and equally petty motive behind it. Walter has been
ceaselessly fighting for the best interest of humanity the best way he knows
how for longer than most of you have been alive. Behind everything he does,
not just his writings, is the interest of humanity. He goes above and beyond
to accommodate to the needs of his students. He has helped students publish
papers against him. He has also advocated for the liberty of every man,
woman, and child on this planet and beyond. I know he will always advocate
reason as the best way to settle our disputes, the peaceful way, and you
will never find him on the side of arguing for transgressions against the
rights of anyone.

You may think you have opened your mind because you have read many things
on the internet but you have only closed your mind to reality to nature, its
complexity, beauty, variety, diversity, intelligence. Now you confuse good
works which require real personal effort with a facebook like or signing a
petition. Walter is a real person, a Jewish person well aware of the dangers
that can come of racialist thinking. You may disagree with his politics.
That is OK but you would be wise to learn from his humanity. I write this
not with pride but with tears for the fate of this world if this wild
arrogance continues unchecked.

I will address one point that has been raised, segregation. Those who
oppose Walter’s position, as presented cut up and out of context of course,
are you so confident in your own position that you would sign a petition to
allow white students to become members of the black student union?

Someone should just fire this man!
As a feminist woman with autism, I'm signing this petition because this world, let alone a university, is no place for racist, ableist, sexist pigs!

I remember comforting a friend who had survived sexual violence after she read this professors article against feminism that was published in 2012. This man has been hurting and re-traumatizing marginalized students for years. Do better, Loyola

He described American slavery by saying it was "not so bad — you pick cotton and sing songs." Another white supremacist who just says, "no I'm not" and all the other racists rally around him. Despicable. And, really, just stupid as hell. I wouldn't send my kids to a school that keeps him on the faculty. Why the heck did they ever hire him? By all accounts he's always been a crackpot.

No place for a racist professor at a school as diverse as Loyola. Or any school for that matter. BLM

Lol your stupid petition where you mischaracterize his positions and sully his name is going to result in him getting a pay raise. You should be ashamed for making this
