Oregon State University is hosting an antiracism conference this semester that will feature a professor who claims that “all grading and assessment exist within systems that uphold singular, dominant standards that are racist, and White supremacist when used uniformly.”
Asao Inoue , an Arizona State University professor who teaches first-year writing courses and works as associate dean for Academic Affairs, Equity, and Inclusion, will be a keynote speaker at “ Conference for Antiracist Teaching, Language and Assessment .”
As Campus Reform previously reported, Inoue wrote a book entitled Labor-Based Grading Contracts: Building Equity and Inclusion in the Compassionate Writing Classroom , in which he argues for a grading system independent of students’ merit.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
