National Review

Excerpt: Joshua Katz is an eminent classics professor who holds degrees from Yale, Oxford, and Harvard, and is the Cotsen Professor in the Humanities at Princeton University. But he refused to bow to the new “anti-racist” orthodoxy, and for that transgression, Princeton is apparently preparing to strip him of tenure and terminate his employment. This act would be a shameful repudiation of what is supposed to be one of the core missions of a great university — and Princeton alumni and donors should make their voices heard while the board of trustees deliberates on Katz’s fate.
