Bias in Academia: Liberal intolerance

Two recent examples of embarrassing liberal intolerance on our college campuses, both courtesy of the DrudgeReport:

A group of employees at South Puget Sound Community College caused outrage after they made it clear that white people would not be welcome at a planned diversity “happy hour” event.
However, despite being forced to apologize, Karama Blackhorn, program coordinator for the school’s Diversity and Equity Center, who helped write the invitation, seemingly doubled down.
“That space is not for white people, that space is for people of color,” said Blackhorn, asserting that staff members cannot discuss race issues with white people present.
“That’s not diversity, that’s anti what we’re preaching here,” responded one student.
And second,
During a pro-life demonstration at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB), a feminist-studies professor allegedly stole a sign at a pro-life demonstration before attacking a student attempting to retrieve it.
