Green Responds To Ricketts Blast
*Audio Version Of Story Below*
The battle over UNL’s “journey to anti racism” rollout and chancellor Ronnie Green continues at the state capital.
Last week the Governor put Chancellor Green on blast saying he’s lost all faith in him over the proposed plan.
Green released a statement yesterday saying he does not believe that UNL is racist, "Nothing could be further from the truth,"
Green goes on to say "Critical race theory is not mentioned anywhere in this plan, recruiting more diverse candidates for faculty and staff has nothing to do with quotas. It's about getting diverse candidates for a job and then hiring the most qualified person."
Two Nebraska state senators are calling on Chancellor Green to resign.
The Panhandle’s Steve Erdman and Hastings Senator Steve Halloran are calling for Green’s removal.
Senator Erdman says Green has been complicit in the spread of left-wing propaganda throughout the university.
Erdman, who serves on the legislature’s appropriations committee, says he would consider cutting the university’s funding over the issue.
