Professor Sues: Shocking Allegation Made Against State University

Penn State University is facing a lawsuit from a former professor alleging discrimination and violation of free speech rights.

Zack De Piero, a former professor at Penn States Abington campus, recently filed a lawsuit against the university claiming that he was subjected to racial intimidation, insults, and criticism for criticizing the schoolsrace-based dogma and discrimination.

The lawsuit, filed by the Foundation Against Intolerance and Racism, said that De Piero was told topenalize the scores of certain students because of their race and was asked to excuse poor academic performance from black and Hispanic students as a result ofsocial justice andantiracism.

De Piero was also allegedly asked by university officials to watch training videos with titles likeWhite Teachers Are a Problem that claimed white people are complicit in white supremacy and that he should attendantiracist workshopsuntil you get it.

The suit also claims that after the death of George Floyd, there was an increase in racial activism at the school that included remarks by the universitys former Assistant Vice President for Education Equity Alina Wong, who reportedly suggested that looting wasjust getting what youre due.

De Piero claims that after questioning Wongs comments, he was hit with abullying complaint.

Leigh Ann ONeill, FAIRs legal advocacy managing director, said De Pieros case is a prime example of theinstitutional intolerance seen in many universities today.

The institutional intolerance that has become so prevalent in the academic space is extremely concerning to us and, you know, we want to champion someone like Zack, who has taken the brave and courageous step to stand up for his rights, ONeill said.

Penn State released a statement reiterating theiractive and ongoing commitment to diversity and equity and said they aredetermined to create an inclusive and respectful environment in which to live, work, and study.

De Piero resigned from his position at Penn State in August 2022 and is now a professor at Northampton Community College. He is seeking unspecified damages and legal costs in his lawsuit.
