You’ve probably heard the term “systemic racism” before. It is the claim that American society is racist to its core and nothing short of a radical dismantling and rebuilding of our values and traditions can “save” it. Most of the woke ideology being pushed by the left is built on this false premise.
Much of this false narrative’s success is due to Eric Stewart, who served as a criminology professor at Florida State University. He produced research that “proved” systemic racism, which would end up being cited over 8,500 times by other researchers. The left used Stewart’s study to promote Marxism and other woke idiocy.
But now, we are learning Stewart’s study used fake data–and the leftist is being outed as a fraud.
A renowned criminology professor who “proved” that racism is systemic in America’s law enforcement and American society has been fired for faking data and his studies have now been retracted.
Eric Stewart, 51, a now former criminology professor at Florida State University in Tallahassee, is now out of work due to “extreme negligence” in his research…
“The damage to the standing of the University and, in particular, the College of Criminology and Criminal Justice and its faculty approaches the catastrophic and may be unalterable.” Clark added…
Stewart, who was a vice president and fellow at the American Society of Criminology, which honored him as one of four highly distinguished criminologists in 2017, was fired after nearly 2 decades of his data was found to have “false results,” which included information used in his study in which he claimed that the history of lynchings made whites perceive blacks are criminals and that the issue was more prevalent among those who are politically conservative.
Stewart was literally spreading lies against white and conservative Americans. He made up data to defend his radical, political views. And the idiotic academic community–which is always eager to run with studies that defend their leftist leanings–used this bunk study to promote their toxic agenda.
Only now, after the damage has been done to our society, has Stewart been outed as a fraud. His study was using fake data and produced “false results.” The man was fired, but the school and department fears the damage he did is “catastrophic” and might never be remedied.
Despite “systemic racism” being proven wrong, Democrats, the media, and many Americans will continue to push Stewart’s claims. Liberals, going all the way to Biden in the White House, keep accusing conservatives of being “racist,” “bigoted,” and even “white supremacists” based on nothing but lies spread by academics.
The only silver lining is that this man has been outed for his many lies.
