Brickbat: White Savior Complex


University of Illinois
Beyond My Ken, CC

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has suspended with pay Jay Rosenstein, a professor of media and cinema studies. Rosenstein, a critic of Native American sports mascots, followed members of a pro-Chief Illiniwek group into a bathroom at a basketball game and videotaped them. The school stopped using the mascot in 2007 but some fans still show up at games dressed like the chief.
