MOCAD sounds like a robot Kirk has to trick into self destruction after it seizes control of the Enterprise.

rcain: You worked there approximately 7 years. In that time 70 independent parties have spoken up against you

Did 70 independent people over a seven year period file separate complaints? No.
Did 70 very interconnected people file one compliant at the same time? Yes. Way closer to what actually happened.
The nice thing about Brigading, to people like you, is that it is self-justifying. When the accusation alone is justification for mob action and instant depersoning and deplatforming, you do not have a movement for justice, you have an unintelligent xenophobic mob looking to purge all otherness. If you lived there it would be 71 complaints, until you ranted to your friends about - in your words - the "racist piece of crap" that you have never met, in order to try to make it 72.

What's the point of aspiring to a position of power and authority if you can't dump on the little people?

On Wednesday, the MOCAD board fired Executive Director Elysia Borowy-Reeder, following charges earlier in the month by over 70 former staffers and interns of abusive treatment and racial harassment.

The move occurs the same day DIA Staff Action Group called for Salvador Salort-Pons to be removed from his post as museum director.

If they quit hiring people with hyphenated names, they might have less problems.

I live here so this is local to me. Both instances in this article sound a lot like "Go be white somewhere else."

These are "Interesting times" and I fear this is only the beginning.
